I expect my students will be happy, enthusiastic learners. I have no doubt they will enjoy lunch and recess. Fifth graders enjoy free time with friends. I look forward to meeting them very soon
They will be encouraged to express themselves and their interests through writing.
I look forward to helping them learn the writing process. They will be engaged in learning about author’s and how authors write.
My fifth grade students will benefit from real mentor texts. These texts will encourage to write like “real” writers, and read books that they enjoy. My students will like to share their writing with their peers.
With these mentor texts, my students will be reading examples of good writing. These books will encourage them to learn about the process of writing, what makes a book good, and how authors write for their audience.
These texts show my students that they can write about their own experiences in a way that is interesting for the reader.
Students have a hard time knowing what good writing is. These books will help them see that writing doesn’t have to be long to be effective.
I will be reading them to the class during writing workshop, and sharing them with specific students or small groups of students during independent writing practice time. They will be used quite often. My students will always be able to pick them up to use as examples. Thank you for supporting our writing lessons!
