Peer Revision

We have been working hard revising our winter stories. Mrs. Steuart had one student use the document camera and read their story line by line. We all gave advice when the writer was stuck or if something didn't sound quite right. This helped us know how to carefully revise when working in groups of two or three. This takes a long time if you are thinking about what makes writing sound wonderful. Painting a picture for the reader, using vivid words and starting sentences in different ways are some of the things we focused on while revising.
