Ideas/ Writing

Esperanza Rising - Pam Muñoz Ryan

By reading this book to my class, we could highlight on how to form main ideas for your writing. "Two birds with one stone" some may say. This book shows some heartbreaking moments, therefore, it would be better suited for a 5th grade class. After reading this story, I would discuss what main ideas the book had and how we can come up with our own main ideas when starting to write. This book illustrates the first trait to an author's craft.
