Picture of the Week! 


Our picture of the week has quadrupled!
I am giving you 4 pictures of the week this week.
We are learning how to write opinions and we are going to apply that to our 
picture of the week this week.

Look at the following photographs that show each of the 4 seasons.

Fall

Spring

Summer

Winter


STUDENTS: Which season of the year is your favorite?
I want you to give reasons and evidence to support your opinion. 
I expect you to write more than one sentence.
In my comments though, I will just be focusing on your 
opinion since that is what we are 
focusing on this week in English.


See you at the edge- Mrs. Shelby

    1. Your reasons are very good. Next time, let's work on making this into more than one sentence. When you have a new thought, make a new sentence. When you write your opinion sentence, stay away from "my favorite".
