100 Word Challenge: Finishing Touches and Publishing Happy Friday! It's just about time to publish this week's 100 Word Challenge. Please look over your 100 Word Challenge: ... when the connection broke ... story carefully. Does your story flow naturally from beginning to end? Did you skillfully integrate the phrase '... when the connection broke ...'? Did you use descriptive words and sensory details?

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.

Write an Argument Essay: Finding Evidence
Today you are going to continue to use the document Evidence for My Argument Essay, located in your Language Arts Google Classroom, to keep track of the evidence you may want to use in your Argument Essay, while also citing your sources. Continue your research independently. Below you will find various links to sources both for and against kids playing football, in addition to the those provided yesterday. Examine the various sources, find evidence that you think will strengthen your argument, and list the source and evidence on your document. You may also want to include a few perspectives that are opposed to your argument, which you may end up refuting in your argument essay.
