HAMBURGER PARAGRAPH ORGANIZER

CRITERIA:

  • Does my topic sentence tell what the paragraph is all about, or what it’s purpose is?
  • Did I include (at least 3) juicy details in my supporting sentences?
  • Is my paragraph well written with complete sentences, proper punctuation and capitalization where needed?
  • Did I include a solid concluding sentence that wraps up the paragraph and/or leaves the reader with something to think about?

Careful when using Google translate to figure out a phrase or word meaning. Often it translates the exact translation of words, not the literal or actually meaning and usage. Use an online French-English Dictionary instead, such as this one: http://www.collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english-french

 

IDENTITY DAYS

Next Wednesday to Thursday is Identity Days at RC Garnett. Students will prepare and share their learning about something that excites their passions and interests, or is a big part of who they are.

SELF PORTRAITS

HELPFUL HINTS:

  • Draw your first circle quite large. Fill your page.
  • Don’t draw too heavy. Sketch lightly to get the shapes and lines right.
  • Both sides of the face should be balanced, not oddly shaped.
  • Be patient until you get the shape and proportion you want.
