Today we will continue to prepare for the AIMS writing test.
Using the rough, first draft you wrote last night, we will discuss how to improve it. We will be focusing on developing our thoughts and ideas while still remaining organized. As I told you yesterday, our focus is to write a five-paragraph piece of writing that is both organized and unique. I will begin by showing you my first draft and how I think I can improve it; then, you will have to work on your own first draft to make it even better!
Your homework is to bring a silent reading book to class tomorrow. It needs to be a book that is new to you: meaning that you have never read it before. During AIMS testing next week, you will be required to have a silent reading book with you at all times. Tomorrow, I will be checking to see that you have a silent reading book. This check will be an assignment worth 10 points; please get these points!
Have a wondrous Thursday!
