Young Authors - Final due date for all manuscripts is Friday May 11th with a formal "check -in" Friday 4/27. All students have chosen one of the following: Narrative, Informational or Poetry. Plans were submitted this past week and all students have started the writing process. Students will be spending 10-15 minutes each day as well as 30-40 minutes twice a week working in class; students will need to work at home as well. There will be three separate grades for this project: a process grade (work completed in class (are students using time wisely?), check in 4/27 and final grade 5/11. All students will need to turn in a final manuscript, but have a choice as to whether they'd like to formally "bind" it and add illustrations. I've been actively encouraging all students to do so. Cassidy and Ben S. have graciously offered to give the class a mini-lesson on book binding ideas; that is scheduled for the week of April 30th
