5th Grade Writing

5th Grade is working on narrowing their focus on personal narratives.  They spent 10 minutes outside on the playground writing down everything they could see.  Then they made “binoculars” and looked through them to "force" them to narrow their focus.  Next, they listed everything they could see, only looking through the binoculars.  This caused them to narrow their focus significantly.  Then the students applied this idea to their own topics, did a writing plan, and started writing!
