•  WELCOME to Mrs. Stone's ELA webpage!

    We're off to a good start. We've been reading The Outsiders as a mentor text as a whole class, and each student selected an individual book that matches one of the themes of The Outsiders, which we'll be discovering along the way.  Students have also been introduced to Reader's Workshop and are showing off their skills of diving deep into their texts during independent work time with their theme novels.  In Writing, students are being introduced to Open Genre Pieces for which they will select their own "Writing Recipes" of topics, genres, purposes, and audiences that they will then take through the writing process. Additionally, they have begun truly thinking about their own writing with regular reflections and goal-setting.
