After we talked about Informational Writing, we zoomed in on our project for the week-writing an ad!
I thought an ad would be a great introduction to informational writing, fun, as well as seasonally appropriate!
The kids have been working a little bit with advertisements in their Library class, so they were familiar with what an ad was.
Since we have already done our prewriting and they had their objects, I wanted them to define what their ads should have, so we did a brainstorm session on the board.
I also did a quick example, to show them what I was looking for.
I gave them the option of just going right to their final copy or doing a draft-since we did a lot of prewriting, I felt comfortable giving them that option.
