Writing – Good Ideas Are Important!

Today was our first day of writing, and I am SO impressed with what I’ve seen so far!  We discussed how ideas make our writing much more interesting for the reader.  Ms. J wrote a short paragraph about horses that had very few ideas and details, then she “spruced it up” by adding some interesting ideas.  The second paragraph was much more enjoyable to read!  The students also saw a picture drawing rubric with examples of what a “Wow!” picture looks like.  We discussed that sometimes it’s easier to write after we have drawn a really good picture because it gives us ideas to write about.  Here are some samples of our writing focusing on good ideas today!
