We are continuing to work on “zooming in” on a small moment, telling the story in order, using transition words and including strong introductions (leads) and endings.
Here’s a lead by Neo:
Do you like when you Dad calls you your brother or sister’s name?
When I was watching TV my Dad came up to me and said, “Roy, do your homework!”
I said, “I am not Roy. I am Neo.”
And one by Amelia:
It isn’t that easy falling on ice off a giant hill. I was about four or five when my brother asked my mom something interesting. I somehow heard him from my room.
And another lead by Suhana:
“Su, do you want to bake a cake for your dad’s 41st birthday?” said my mom. I said, “Sure!”
We worked on a question like this:
A three-digit number has at least two 4s in it. One of the 4s is worth 10 times as much as the other 4. What might the number be?
