In writing this week students worked on adding facial expressions, details, and also labelings to their writing pieces.

Some students even used the family photo wall to help them with story ideas and how to spell words as mom and dad. 
H worked on his story about how he was dreaming about that he was at the zoo and saw a monkey. You can see how he added details and even wrote the word zoo.
