• Welcome, writer!  This year, you will experiment as a young author with new techniques, strategies, and types of writing.  You will use your Writer's Notebook as a tool to explore your ideas.  The five domains of focus, content, organization, style, and conventions will be strengthened throughout the year.  We will practice working through the writing process of prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing.  Imagine, create, and experiment!  Get your pencil ready
