Quarter 1 Writing Assignment

Quarter 1 Writing Assignment 2017-2018

As you know, every quarter, students in grades 5 through 8 will have a writing assignment that is to be worked on at home.  These assignments are expected to be three to five paragraphs long.  The assignment for the first quarter is to write a narrative piece—a story—that is a true personal story or a fictional story. We have worked on this type of writing with our “Superhero” assignment and our personal narrative paragraphs.

For this assignment you will be graded as such: 


FCAs

1.      Interesting lead                       100      50                               

2.      Use 5 or more vivid verbs and/or adjectives

·         5+        100

·         3-4       85

·         0-2       70

3.      Proper format

1. Indent for paragraphs

2. Use 4-5+ sentences per paragraph

3. Stay on one topic

4. Writing is clear, distinct, and well-developed with an introduction, body, and conclusion

·         1 of the 4         25

·         2 of the 4         50

·         3 of the 4         75

·         4 of the 4         100

 

This assignment is due on October 30, 2017.  We are more than happy to provide help for any student that asks for specific assistance. We also highly recommend using Hamburger Paragraph organizers which are available for anyone that would like some.
