We are working on opinion writing. We read the story, Hey, Little Ant. The students will write whether they think the boy should squish the ant or let him go free and provide a reason why. We also read "What If You Had Animal Teeth?" The students had to decide what kind of animal teeth they would want and provide 2 reasons why.
The students also need to focus on using their writers eyes. Begin all sentences with a capital letter, all lowercase letters throughout the sentence, spaces between words, and an ending mark.
