Class for 12-9-05

Welcome back to the Classroom of Love!

Today you will be showing me you are able to analyze the meaning of words using word structures, content and word origin. You will also be showing me you can write for a variety of occasions, audiences and purposes. (Sarasota Standards 2.1 and 5.5)

Please write the following in your agenda and keep your agenda on your table so that I may see it:

Agenda: Finish writing if you did not complete it in class.

Today, we have two tasks to complete:
Task 1: Create origami object of your choice.
Task 2: Write using the origami object as your muse.

Procedures to remember: 3-Before-Me and Quiet Signal.

Task 1: I have compiled a list of different origami possibilities and linked them to the list below. Simply click on one of the words and you will be taken to the instructions for how to make that object or animal. Select one of the objects and use the paper I have provided to create that object. You may use your team's markers and scissors if needed.

I have samples of each of these if you would like to see them.

Object List:

Task 2: After you have created and decorated your object, please get your comp. book from the back shelf and turn to a blank page.

At the top of the page, please write:
Which object you created

Please use the remainder of your time to write using your object as your muse or inspiration.

You may write for any number of different purposes:

Story, "Once upon a time, there lived a lazy little tree snail..."

Journal entry from the point of view of your object, "It stinks being a paper tank, I've got nothing to do and no one is intimidated by my little folded barrel..."

Production log telling what you thought and felt as you created your object, "Grrrrr, I picked the hat because I thought it would be the easiest to make, but I quickly found out I was wrong..."

Or any other type of writing you can think of. The only rule is that is must include your object directly.

Note: If you do not have time to complete your writing in class, you may take your comp. book home to complete the writing and return it to me Monday at the start of class.
