This Week’s Comment “Look-for’s”
Look-for #1: Contains all parts of a letter (Greeting, Body, Closing, Signature), with correct use of capitals, commas, and spacing (example: a greeting gets a line all to itself).
Look-for #2: Transition Words – We are trying to get students to understand that there are times it is ok to use words like, “First,” “Second,” “Third,” “Then,” “Finally,” but that this particular post is not the best time to use those particular transition words. These words are more for paragraphs in which you are trying to teach
In this post, we encouraged them to use transitions such as; “It was interesting when…” “I learned…” “I couldn’t believe that __________.”
