Reflection: Write a Letter to An Author - Section 1: Warm Up


With a time constraint at the time we did this, this kids didn't get as detailed as in the video example.  The next time around I would give them the sample of questions in worksheet form rather than reading and discussing my expectations with them.  Nonetheless, my objective with this warm up video was to show the fun they have with such an activity.
