  • People turned in the Musical Memory journal to the drawer.
  • People kept their page 60, the rough draft of the Sense Poem.
Writing Lesson
  • Point of View--When we think about an issue like the war in Iraq, how many different points of view are there for looking at a situation like that?  American soldier, soldier's mother, Iraqi child, Iraqi insurgent, destroyed building, doctor trying to heal people--and the list goes on.  
  • We listened to and viewed the short story DIARY OF A SPIDER, and we talked about what details in that story would appeal to children, and which details really reflect the Point of View of the spider.
  • We listened to WHEN I WAS LITTLE for storytime, and I modeled how to read to young children.  We also talked about how a four-year-old sees the world.
Writing Assignment
  • I went over the Early Memory assignment on page 47, and I read Lauren Moeller's memoir as an example.
Writing Workshop
  • We had twenty-five minutes to type.
  • We read some of the Autobiographical Poems aloud, and we jotted down two things about the person that we didn't already know.
  • None
