Rearranging the furniture...

This week in writing we have been working to revise (rearrange the furniture) in our writing. Students are learning to work with peers to see what questions does the reader have after reading the story. After sharing, the author tries to revise their story to answer the questions or better explain part of the story (making the furniture fit and look better).

See how it works...A student wrote about her birthday (1st pic), after confrencing it wasn't clear why it was the best day. She went back and revised (pic 2)...

We have some wonderful authors!
