In one of our reading workshop units, we started a book club book in our class. My group got a book called Loser, by Jerry Spinelli. In Loser there's a kid named Zincoff who has problems with other kids who tease him. But along the way, he meets different kids who try to help him. Hope you enjoy my video.
In our class, we got to start a fun project with famous explorers. During this process, we researched about these great explorers, and published it on a website that everyone could see, called Narrable. When we researched, we took at least 2 weeks just to finish this project. I hope you like my video.
The reason we use persuasive statements or essays because it is an easy way to try to change someone’s mind. Persuasive essays have a lot of supporting facts to why you want this or that. You can start the essay off with your main statement into the essay. Say you didn’t want a type of law that kids weren’t aloud to where uniforms. Well, you could have your strong beginning with your stronger statement or claim that you want, and add at least 2 or 3 other paragraphs that support your claim. You would need examples that support your reasons and a good conclusion that wraps everything you have been talking about with different words. That is how to write a persuasive essay, and what it is.
A note from the author
This week, my teacher wanted me to revise my small moment piece during the weekend. We had to revise and edit our first published piece in two separate documents. During the revising and editing process, I found a bunch of mistakes and improper grammar. I only used simple sentences and made them into great and better sentences by changing the dialogue and many more. In my story, I found so many miss spelled words and using commas incorrectly. I found so many compound sentences in my run on sentences. When there were just a couple words I changed it into a real authors sentence. That is what we had to do for our writing piece.
