SLT’s and HW Check

SLT- I can use transition words to improve my science writing.  

Circle the verbs, underline the nouns

Mini-Lesson:

Ex: I am a pretty amazing person. I am still growing.

How can you add a transition word to connect these two sentences? Re-write the sentence in your notebook. 

THINK: Why do writers use transitions in their writing? 

Independent Work Time: 

  1. OPTION A: Continue to write Chapter 1 of your “Evolution of Me” Project by adding transition words as you go! 

  2. OPTION B: Revise Chapter 1 of your “Evolution of Me” Project by adding transition words to what you’ve already written. 

  3. OPTION C (“I’m Finished!”): Use the “editing basics” task card to make overall edits to your writing. 

 Starting your Introduction: 

1. Who you are (Hi! I’m _____).

2. Three character traits that describe you.

3. How old are you; where are you from; what do you like to do

4. What makes you unique? (special talents, hobbies, things no one else knows about you, etc.)
