Elementary Writing Students Write Critiques
My elementary writing students have been learning how to write a critique, using the IEW critique model. We read Horton Hatches The Egg together, and outlined a five-paragraph critique. The students did an amazing job! They have come so far this year, from writing one-paragraph informative paragraphs, to five-paragraph essays, and now critiques!
While grading their papers today, I saw several of them making the same mistakes in punctuating dialogue. I decided to create a mini lesson on punctuating dialogue as a refresher for avoiding common errors.
I hope this video is helpful for students and parents. :)
