Gillispie “Gem” of the Week


After studying how authors use different “bold beginnings” to bring their writing to life, students in Mrs. Watkins’ Grade 2 classroom did a scavenger hunt to find examples of each of the six types. Also part of their Learning Headquarters writing program, they read high-quality informational texts as they practiced identifying an author’s purpose and point of view. Small groups then used evidence from the texts to decide whether they agreed or disagreed with the authors’ messages.
