Today we started opinion writing. We began with a great book, I Wanna Iguana. This book is written in letter form between a boy, Alex, and his mother. By the end Alex has given so many convincing reasons that his mother agrees to a pet Iguana. Pretty awesome! Today we took some time to convince Miss Kylie of some things we are passionate about.
For example...we should do more art in class because we need to boost our creativity and practice making mistakes. We should have more free choice because it's good to work with our friends. We should have another ski day because outside time is healthy and exercise is good. We should have a class pet because it will teach us responsibility and taking turns. Are some of these things starting to sound like good ideas to you too? We're a pretty convincing bunch.
THE WAY THINGS WORK...
