We Are ALL Readers and Writers!

Discover the joy of books and READ.


 Today's Learning Objectives  (1.) Describe how a particular story’s plot unfolds in a series of episodes as well as how the characters respond or change as the plot moves toward a resolution.

Make sure you are using descriptive words and sensory details in order to paint a picture for your readers. If you would like to meet, I will be available at the author's table.
