The children brainstormed ideas in their journals about having a "Lucky Day" and all the really good things that could happen in one day. We broke it down into morning, noon and night.
I had my children use:
a 4-square graphic organizer
six trait writing checklist
We spent several days writing, revising and editing. They published their stories. They added a LUCK sign complete with a real lucky penny!(glued over shamrock) This is a perfect prompt for March.
Our MCAS long comp is March 20th. Finally...we can move on to a new type of writing!!!!
I feel so LUCKY!!!!
