All this week is National Robotics week! As a Slice of Life entry, let’s focus on the text type: descriptive writing. Click on the National Robotics link and explore the “trading cards” lists. Choose 1-2 cards and describe which one(s) is/are the most interested to you. Describe what they are and WHY you chose them.
If you download the “Robots for Ipad” app, there is much more including videos of how these robots are used in the real world. Do you have your own toy robot? On Friday, I will permit you to bring it in and demo it with the class, with your parents permission!
To practice our short narrative writing, we’re going back to an old favorite of making stories out of photos! We’re calling the images “Slice-of-Life” photos. Here is the image for this week…
Slice of Life photo—Pick one of people in the photo attached. Write a brief first-person account of what is happening from their point-of-view. Use dialogue, descriptive language and other features you’ve practiced to make this “Slice of Life” come alive. Post to your blog with a CREATIVE TITLE!
**Any guesses about the origin of this are welcomed! I’ll let the class know the details by the end of the week!
