Fourth graders will learn to write in a variety of styles. It is my hope that they will love the process of creating images with words and look forward to coming to my class daily. We will create a lot. The next Stephen King or J.K Rowling might be in this class.
Purposes for writing
Persuade - Opinion piece
Inform - Expository piece
Entertain - Personal Narrative piece
No matter what we write, however, it will need to have a main idea and supporting details. This skill will be hammered.
