Going Eggy! Oviparous Stories

Today we studied "oviparous" animals - animals that come from eggs

The students first were given a choice of writing an expository piece about oviparous animals or a fictional story about something that comes from an egg.  While I was conferencing 1:1 with the students, they were painting their egg.  Then they went back to their seats and wrote the "final draft".  Finally, they were to create a picture of the "main character" in their story.  We are at the very beginning stages of actual fictional story writing.  Also, the painting activity took so long, some didn't write as much as they often do.  But they didn't do too badly!







There's a start to "onomotopeia" in this story:  "Pop!"
