Publishing and the 'Packing Shed'

Sofia learns the value of hard work in the 'Packing Shed'.





100 Word Challenge: Publishing Happy Friday! It's just about time to publish this week's 100 Word Challenge. Please look over your 100 Word Challenge: Five Words story carefully. Does your story flow naturally from beginning to end? Did you skillfully integrate the words: gas, dancer, green, swimming, and likely? Did you use descriptive words and sensory details? Did you carefully review your spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and grammar? Did you make sure your verb tenses are consistent and that you have employed correct and varied sentence structures? Please make sure your piece of writing is good as it can be.

Next, it's publishing time! Copy your story from your Google Doc and then login to Kidblog. Make a new post. Give your story an appropriate title. Paste your story. Color or bold the five words from this week's prompt. Consider adding a picture. Finally, click 'Publish' and copy the link to your published story.


Now it's time to share your story with the 100 Word Challenge. In order to login, I will provide you a working Username and Password. Next, fill out the form similar to the one below, making sure to include the link to your Kidblog story. Click 'Submit' when you're done. Congratulations! You are now an internationally published writer!



Guided Reading: Tequila Worm  Today we will begin reading the chapter "The Packing Shed" (pgs. 102 - 111) of Tequila Worm. As we read, we will stop periodically to discuss the text and, if time permits, work on the guiding questions from our 'The Tequila Worm' Reading Guide (Week 3). We will also continue to add to our Story Plot Chart ('Tequila Worm').
