L. Pals - Class Assignment
Recently, Mrs. L. Pals and several of the language arts classes worked on writing good sentences and directions. The students were first given a blank pumpkin and told to color it however they wanted. They then had to write the directions out step by step on how they decorated their pumpkin. Directions had to be so precise without missing a step, including where exactly things were located, the size, color, etc. And finally, they had to give their directions to a partner. Their partner had to read their directions carefully and try to recreate their pumpkin on a blank one. Students quickly learned how important it is to not only write good directions, but to also follow directions.
