Elementary Write On!

Welcome to my amazing, hard-working, state project students!

I am excited to continue working with you on your state projects. Be sure to keep researching, writing sentences on your cards, and decorating final templates. Every week I will post a video lesson that will explain other pages we will be completing and activities related to our project.

I can't wait to see your final books! 

 

If you need final page plastic sleeves or a binder, they are available for pick up on my porch. Stop by anytime, no need to knock or ring the bell,

just take the number you need.

My address is 110 Burwood Way, Folsom.

If you are unable to come by, let me know so we can make other arrangements. 

Week #1 : March 24 - 27
Summary and Instructions

Today we are going to talk about guidelines for illustrating your final pages and review plagiarism. You will need your blue packet and the pages you are working on. Make sure you have glue, colored pencils, markers, or crayons, and scissors. It is also a good idea to have a super fine tip black sharpie or similar pen.
