Linking up with Teaching Fourth for this week's Fun Friday.
And linking up with Amanda for her Friday Flashback.
This week we focused on the Vikings in social studies. The highlight was writing with Viking runes.
In literacy, we focused on writing number notes using the Write Tools program by Alice Greiner. I highly recommend this program for writing. Number notes is a pre-writing outlining strategy. Here is an example that we did for Native Americans.
From here, you write four different kinds of topic sentences - declarative statement, number sentence, question, and situation/stance. Pick one to be your topic sentence and one to be your concluding sentence. If anyone is interested, I can go into further detail in another post.
So that's what's been going on this week. Thanks for stopping by!
