Mrs. McFarland's Classes

In Communication Arts, the students are starting a unit on the writing process and how to use word choice to enhance their writings. A spooky scary story rough draft is due Monday( blue classes) and Tuesday (gold classes). The students have already filled out a graphic organizer called, "Things That Go Thump In The Night" and are to use one word from each category in their story. Mrs. McFarland will be putting all their stories in a classroom anthology for each child and will also submit this to the Language Arts Fair for judging in April. There will be no Spelling Tests for the next few weeks because the students will be working on their stories and beginning a new novel, Trouble River.
