Mary Lou,
I liked the idea of writing about a picture then reading the paragraphs and
matching them up with the correct picture.
We have smart boards now and it helps our students to see someone's work
projected on the board. It is easier for them to grasp the concepts for
writing, seeing it enlarged. They seem to be quickly grasping the parts of
speech and punctuation, too.
