In December the second grade classroom has been very busy using their Writer’s Workshop skills by writing letters to their favorite authors.
They looked at the writer’s details in their word choice, the meaning of the illustrations, and the techniques used to convey the mood of the story. Then, the students followed the O-R-E-O (Opinion, Reasons, Examples, and Opinion) format to write an opinion paper to the author.
The students wrote letters to Mark Teague, Dav Pilkey, Jeff Kinney, Mo Williams, Victoria Kann, and R.L. Stine.
