Manic Monday Missions
ELA 3, 4, and 5
- Let's write a lot! Your first of FIVE journal entries is due tomorrow. Write about what you did, saw, heard, and draw a picture.
- The Genre of the Week is "MYSTERY." Write a mystery including secrets, clues, shadowy figures, an unsolved murder of a cuddly teddy bear, or a lost sunken treasure. Add James Bond-ish technology: a pen that's also a laser, x-ray glasses, a go go gadget hat that transforms into a helicopter. Be creative and interesting. Keep us guessing about WHO did it?
- You are also responsible for any do-overs, incompletes, and rewrites. RE-WRITES are too important. This is arguably the most important stage in the writing process!
- I want to help mold and shape your writing so that by the time you hit middle school you are all power writers, master dream fishers, and expert wordsmiths!
