Mrs. Shiflett's second graders and Mrs. Vensko's third graders have been working
together in partnerships to publish a narrative writing about a day when they
became trapped inside of a snow globe. The students have been learning how to
write a multiple paragraph narrative with a focus on characters, setting, and
plot. Students also learned the importance of "hooking the reader" from the
start using onomatopoeia (sound words). Narrative pieces will be sent to
Student Treasures Publishing company (www.studentreasures.com).
