Hello Everyone! Today, I am linking up with Jivey from Ideas by Jivey for her awesome linky, Workshop Wednesday.
This week's topic is biographies. This works out perfect for me because we will start biographies in two weeks, after our OAA testing is over. I have found one of the more challenging things about teaching biographies is writing an engaging lead. Students tend to begin with the date and place of birth. This year, I am really going to push my students to hook their readers.
There are lots of great mentor texts for biographies out there. I am going to share three of my favorites to use for crafting leads.
I can't wait to read all of the other great ideas for biographies! Thank you, Jivey, for hosting this linky!
Enjoy the rest of the week and the long weekend!
