Weekly Writing organized from Brainstorming to Final Copy. Editing checklist included as well.
Weekly writing if something I assigned each week in my third grade classroom beginning in January. It is May and their writing is amazing!
This topic is Wants vs. Needs.
A need is something you have to have, something you can’t do without.
A want is something you would like to have. It is not absolutely necessary.
Food is something you need to survive, but depending on particular food (ice cream) it becomes a want.
Do you ever confuse something you need for something you want? This week think about what it is you really need, versus things you want.
In your everyday life, what are your wants versus your needs? Do you have more wants or more needs?
