Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Looking at the Characters - Section 5: Independent Practice

 

What I noticed about the journals, several students got started but did not finish in the allotted time.  They were able to verbally describe the boy and the bear, but not able to get the words on their papers.  After checking all the journals I realized part of the problem was not knowing how to write details, without making it look like a list.  Which told me, I had to go back and have a mini lesson on adding details during our regular writing block.
