Now I decided that I'm going to do a chapter in Science on animals.

We have MCAS (state testing) on Wednesday and Thursday.  We have been preparing so much and so well, the kids are as ready as they'll ever be.

We working on our hand adjective project.  Here are the steps:

1.  Make an organizer.  On one side, write 5 adjectives that describe you (these adjectives must be "strong" adjectives; we brainstorm a list of possible adjectives before this step; no adjectives like nice, good...).

2.  Next to each adjective, give at least 2 reasons to support each adjective.

3.  Write a rough draft with a strong beginning.

4.  Review rough draft with your Writing Circle (partners) (I got this idea from Jennifer's blog).

5.  Write final copy.

6.  Trace hand.  Write an adjective on each finger.  Decorate hand. (The kids are so creative with their drawings.)

7.  Share your writing!
