“Books R Us”

“‘Books R Us” — The Intermediates are writing and ‘publishing’ their own books.  After spending weeks developing the characters, the setting, the plot and the conclusion, the students have used the writing strategies we have learned:

  • brainstorming
  • finding our audience
  • deciding on genre
  • finding a hook to interest readers
  • organizing sentences and ideas
  • using effective dialogue
  • using transitional phrases
  • improving our writing with similes, onomatopoeia, alliteration, personification, and more

Then we are using ‘peer review’ to help us with constructive criticism.  Finally we are illustrating, writing and even dedicating our books. Look out Lemony Snicket!!!!
