Our class also learned how to do a squiggle, which we will do during Work on Writing for Daily 5. You roll a letter die to choose your letter. Then you must draw a picture with that letter in it and write a story about it. We had several great squiggles this week. I even drew a squiggle, Carrot Man, and wrote a story.
The week ended by saving Fred. Fred is a worm that loves to go out on his boat. However, Fred can't swim and he hates wearing his life preserver. Fred's boat capsized and the life jacket was under the boat. Fred was stuck on top of the boat. The students had to use the steps of the scientific method to figure out a way to save Fred by putting on his life jacket using only 4 paper clips (no hands). Fred couldn't fall in the water (desk top). Every group was successful, however, some had to rethink the steps they were using to rescue Fred. Here are a few pictures of the Fred rescue.
Students: This week post what you wrote about this week during writing time. You can share your writing from the squiggle, writing small, or show don't tell. You don't need to type exactly what you wrote (but can if you want to). Just share enough for us to get an idea of what you wrote about.
