When I think about my Smarties, sometimes that song from Toby Keith runs through my mind..
"Wanna Talk about Me.. Wanna Talk about I.. Wanna Talk about Number 1"
What I love the most about this is that it gives my Smarties an entire page to TALK ABOUT THEMSELVES! Something they love to do <hee hee> and then we can use this information throughout our narrative unit. We have written our rough drafts, and are ready to begin reviewing revision of leads, transitions and conclusions. Five weeks have already gone by, can you believe it!
