4th Grade Writing Samples

What does free writing look like in 4th grade? Below are snapshots of three different students' writing pieces:




Check out the advanced sentence structure and vocabulary in Hunted. After conferring with this student, I taught the class how to use dashes in writing. JC keeps me on my toes!






Check out how CD uses dialogue in Chapter One of The Lost Sword. I was impressed by his advanced sentence structure at the beginning of Chapter One! 


This student, AH, is writing Cats in Clans. Her idea is modified from Erin Hunter's Warriors' books. Take time to read this. I watched her write it all alone. It's hard to believe she's only 10 years old! We'll work on formatting tomorrow. Stay tuned for her next revision.
