We loved meeting Judy Dow, an Abenaki educator, today! We enjoyed learning about sweetgrass & basket making.

We felt inpsired by Amanda's work and loved hearing Loren Long share his process as an artist as we prepared to illustrate our realistic fiction narratives!

Today we worked on letting our ideas flow through a creative writing activity. Students got into groups of three. Each student wrote a beginning, then passed their story to a friend who wrote the middle, and then passed the story to the final person who wrote the ending. It was so fun to see how our story ideas evolved and changed from how we first envisioned them. We also learned, that if you don't follow the given arc of the story, your story won't make sense. We have been working hard to finish our realistic fiction narratives. It was nice to take a break from that hard work & just let our ideas flow, have some fun, and really connect as writers!
