The first two units on note taking and summarizing from notes are the best close reading strategies I have used with my students. Writing with Structures and Style is based on best practice that includes: K-12 teacher training, mentor text, college ready outlines, check list, rubrics and anchor text. Students learn quickly using a spiraling model that is a pedagogically sound. Students learn how to develop rich-beautiful language that ignites their passion for writing and makes my 4th grade class sound like high school students. My gifted writers and advanced readers, are teaching other students using the Structure and Style methods creating and amazing synergy that is contagious. The advanced writers are know above and beyond their peers that are not using the methods. Teaching students to write is no longer a dread for my students and I have a new passion for writing instruction.
The Student Writing Intensive curriculum is IEW's "Writing Boot Camp" that will help students in a very fast linear way to succeed on any writing assignment or assessment.

Let me educate you about food science because nutrition is extremely important. Potatoes have lots of lovely nutrition like protein, minerals, vitamin C, riboflavin, thiamine, niacin, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. Who knew 1 potato could have all that nutrition! But frying a potato ( Includes any vegetable ) will wipe out all the great nutrition. Potatoes are a important part of a healthy diet. Hopefully you eat potatoes everyday! Do you only use potatoes to make potato chips?
You'll be amazed to learn how to make a healthy potato chips in a oven! My method of making thin, crispy chips is to bake them with olive oil which makes them tantalizing! The first step is to cut a big, tasty looking potato into long strips. Then pulp the potato slices into a large bowl of cold water ( Do the exact same thing just with warm water. ) Take the slippery potatoes and dry them extremely well with dishcloth. Now for the fun part, baking! Put them on a baking sheet and then preheat the oven to 425'F. Sprinkle a little bit of of sea salt and drizzle a bit of olive or canola oil ( Your choice! ) After that insert the soggy slices into the oven and wait for 15 - 20 minutes. Then take them out, and observe. Does the cold or warm water effect it?

Its fascinating to think and learn about electricity and magnetism. My experiment is to successfully design a serise circuit and a parallel circuit to test conductors and insulators. because electricity traves through conductors it is not a open circuit or a short circuit phones or other devises do not work. electricity ultimately powers the world. why do you think the sun having a hicop destroys every circuit?
My science experament is safely learning about conductors , insulators and different tipes of circuits. its facinating to learn and think about conductors and insulators. first let me talk about what is an insulator. an insulator is electricity that cant pass and shock you. now let me talk about what a conductor is. a conductor is when electricity can pass through a wire witch is the foundation of every circuit. now let me talk about a parallel circuit , a series circuit , an open circuit , a short circuit , and a closed circuit.a parallel circuit is a parallel wiring that allows the electric current to move through the wire. a sereis circuit is a circuit that when resistors are conected in a sieres. an open circuit is when a circuit is accidentally established beatween two points in an electric circuit. a closed circuit is a circuit providing a endless path for the flow of a current.its facinating to explore how to make electric circuits conductors and insulators. i am cooking and designing a batch of electric squishy circuits. because playing with playdough is fun playing with electricole playdough is more jollit. do you think you can make a electric circuits? Now let me tell you how , first get all your ingreadeants witch have to be cooked. one batch has acied and salt witch is the conductor the other dosent witch is the insulator. you might need to put conductive playdough with the insulating playdough to make the seriese circuit.
