Picture of the Week: September 21, 2015

STUDENTS:  I have loved reading what you write about the Picture of Week the past few weeks.
You have done such a wonderful job and are just getting better and better each week.
This week we need to focus.
This is your job this week.
Choose ONE idea that you want to write about for this picture.
Type 2-3 sentences about that ONE idea before you move on to another idea.

Let's try it.

    1. Thank you, Dhanin! I love how you wrote 3 good sentences about the photograph. Remember to capitalize the beginning of the sentence. I would love for you to choose one of the ideas you had and elaborate on it. Tell me more. I want you to get to where you can write 3 good sentences about one idea and then go on to another idea. You are on the right track!

    1. Ooohhh.... I like where you were going with this, Abigail! Very nicely done! I want you to work up to be able to write 4 sentences about one idea. Look at the photograph and tell me more. What other ideas can you get from it to help you elaborate your point? You are on the right track though! Keep working hard!

    2. Abigail, I think you had a good eye when you saw that cat. I think you have a good comment! I agree with you because cats do eat mice. If I would have seen the cat I would have wrote that as one of my ideas. Are you going to go farther and write more? I really hope that you are! Try as hard as possible. Keep pushing yourself to the edge! Good luck! By Kendyl

  3. I think the mouse is in the cup because there was cheese in the cup. The mouse could have possibly smelt the cheese because mice love cheese. I got that idea because in the picture the mouse is eating cheese in the cup. I also have another idea! My other idea is that someone put some cheese in the cup to trap the mouse. I think that their plan might be to get the mouse in the cup by putting cheese in the cup. When the mouse was in the cup they might put a lid on the cup or flip the cup over. My third idea is that someone is doing an expirement. I don't know what kind of expirement they might be doing but it's possible that they could be doing an expirement. As I was writing I realized how my answers go together in some ways! - By Kendyl H.

    3. I love your additions to the comment! Remember to put a period at the end of your last sentence. You wrote "the mouse's name is Jerry" correctly, but you didn't write "the cats name is Tom" correctly. Be sure you are doing the little things! They make a big difference.

    1. Hayden,
      You are on the right track, but I am having a hard time understanding some of your thoughts. Many of your "sentences" are not sentences. Remember you have to have a subject and a verb in order to make a complete sentence. I want you to read your answer out loud and try to fix it. Your last 2 sentences are wonderful! I love your thinking on those! Keep it up! You can do this!

    2. Da'Kedra, You just get better and better! First of all, you don't have any run-on sentences! Success! However, your first sentence is incomplete because you stopped it after the word because, so watch that. I love how you went back yesterday and added your math terms to your comment. See me for a signature about that! I love how you are taking what you learn in other subjects and adding it to what we are doing in reading! Keep up the great work!
