I LOVE ending the year this way! Students reflect on their journey thus far- successes, defeats, what they've learned. They then think about the future and what they hope to accomplish along the way.
We love this Common Threads pack because it...
-provides twelve, thematically connected texts (3 literary, 3 expository, 3 poems, and 3 others)
-includes 5 Short Answer Questions, 2 expository prompts, and 2 persuasive prompts
-gives step-by-step instructions so that students are self-sufficient* while writing their epic poem
-gives you a reason to incorporate and coo over their baby pictures
