Here is the writing lesson of the month from Corbett Harison. Enjoy:)
My New Writer's Notebook Challenge: We're getting ready to review verbs, so I've been working on a writer's notebook challenge based on Brian Cleary's picture book about verbs: "To Root, to Toot, to Parachute." I came up with "Tri-Verb Rhyming Comics," and you can view my teacher model here: http://writinglesson.ning.com/profiles/blogs/verb-review-challenge
Can you create a tri-verb rhyming comic? The formula is: 1-syllable verb + 1-syllable verb + 3-syllable verb, and the three verbs have to rhyme. Then, you have to use Mr. Stick to create an idea for the story. I made five of them, and it was kind of fun. I'm not sure which comic I like best! I did use the RhymeZone website for a few of them.
Sacred Writing Slide of the Month: Our featured SWT slide of the month is Wednesday of this week: http://corbettharrison.com/documents/SWT/Free-Monthly-Slide-January14.pdf Great holiday that kids will love to write about, great quote from Churchill, and great vocabulary word to challenge them to use five times that day!
