Hello Lovely 7th Graders!!
Today we began class with a Quick Write and had the chance to consider our similarities to a character from THE ABSOLUTE VALUE OF MIKE--or to follow another train of thought (or heart) that callied out to us!
Then we did a read-through of the short story rubric in pairs decided by birthdays.
Following that, we worked in groups to finish our small creative writing (in class assignment) envisioning Past's past: how did he get to be homeless? What is his backstory?
Our word of the day was BOISTEROUS, which means loud and chaotic!
And for homework tonight, remember to finish your final drafts of your own short story and bring in the printed copy with the rubric attached.
