Do you remember the first time you ever did something? When was a time you ever felt brave or sad or joyful? These are some of the questions we will ask ourselves during our first unit as we write true stories from our personal experiences. We will learn strategies that will hep us collect ideas and strengthen our writing. We will form writing groups so that we can help each other as we go through the writing process. We will learn from real authors by using their books as mentor texts that help us along they way.
