Words are Gifts

Letter to my Writers

Dear Writers,

I appreciate how well you’ve been working on your essays. I know it has not been straightforward but I can see you are all working very hard to achieve a persuasive claim.

Tomorrow, you will be working on your body paragraphs, and as you have already decided on the reasons to support your thesis statement, all you have to do is to select the evidence and examples that help expand and explain your reasons.

Our next lesson will help you select the appropriate evidence, we will also share transitional phrases that will help you truly convince your reader.

Do let me know if you need help at anytime during the next lesson. There will also be student samples and our selected mentor text available to guide you.

See you during the lesson tomorrow, come prepared to do your best writing.

Yours sincerely,

Ms. Juliette

Yesterday’s slice was my thoughts about my lesson. Today I felt the need to write to my fifth grade writers.
