Who Stole Frosty’s Nose?

Students!

A terrible crime has been committed! Someone stole Frosty the Snowman’s nose! You say you didn’t do it but, how do we know for sure?

Write your very best alibi explaining your whereabouts and how you couldn’t possibly have stolen Frosty’s nose. Be very persuasive…otherwise…

One good paragraph. This is a persuasive write, meaning you need to be very convincing with your reasoning. Good luck!

Have a very fun holiday break, safe travels, and see you in 2018!!

Deserted Island

Hi Students!

You get to take one book that you have read, one food item, and one famous person (living or dead) to a deserted island. What and whom do you take? Explain why for each fully.

Remember that the important words in a book title are capitalized.

Be sure to have a creative opening sentence!

Hi Students!

Please choose ONE image to write on.

A creative three paragraph story (intro, details, conclusion) based on what you see in the image is the goal for this week’s prompt.

You may write from first person perspective or third person. If you choose to use dialog, remember those quotation marks and commas. Each time someone new speaks, you must drop down to a new line. Watch those run-on and incomplete sentences, and I want to see the use of effective commas.

The way you begin your story should clearly tell the reader which image you are responding to. Please DO NOT begin with: “I chose the image of…to write on.” Peer edit with a classmate before posting.

The bio on Christopher Boffoli is from the website bigappetites.net, and all images are courtesy of Christopher Boffoli. They truly are amazing and tell wonderful stories…which one will you tell?

 

 

 

Advice For a Character

Hi Students,

Please follow the directions under the image. Use the IR book you are reading or just completed for this writing assignment. Be sure to explain the “why” in relation to what has happened in the story.

One good paragraph and watch your sentence structure and spelling. Also, please tell your character’s name and book title. Remember book titles are in caps and the title is either underlined or in italics. Please do a good job editing!

Find the Terrifying Fantastic!

Hi Students,

Since you are beginning to build your mythological beast in art, and we are in the midst of writing our Find the Fantastic Blotz poems, I came across this writing prompt which complements our unit. 🙂

Follow the directions on the image. State your creature’s name (yetishark) or (explain the name if you modify the parts: sheti) and why the combination you chose is the most terrifying. Describe what your new creature does.

As always, begin with a creative lead in sentence and conclude with something thoughtful. One good DESCRIPTIVE paragraph. Let’s see some commas!
