Hi 2nd Grade! I'm sorry my video messages aren't working! sad  I am really excited because I was able to get our writing checklist poster from our classroom last week! Right now, we are getting ready to move from DRAFT to REVISE. Check out my writing from last week. Before I say "I'm done" I'm going back and looking over my graphic organizers that I had made. I realized I didn't give any details about the trampolines, stores, or seal pier! I'll be going back today to add some more details to that section of my writing. I'm also going to add the suggestion Gavin made from last week's zoom meeting of telling my reader where we're going in the beginning of my writing.

I was also able to switch one of my words to make it a bit fancier.

You'll notice I used post-its to add to my writing, but if you don't have post-it's you can jot your revising notes on a seperate piece of paper. I am not going to rewrite my entire story, I am just going to add little notes here and there to improve my writing.
