Daily Mini Writing Lessons Adverbs and Adjectives

Daily Mini Writing Lessons Adverbs and Adjectives | Morning Bell Work Mini Writing Lessons 

A writing mini-lesson should last around 10-15 minutes.  

Have your students take out a pen and paper at the beginning of each class and start writing a mini letter to themselves about positive learning aspects, things they are grateful for, areas of accomplishment and strengths, areas they want to improve and mind, body, and spirit insights. Have students quickly brainstorm the type of student they want to be and the things they are curios about learning during the week. Use premade word-list for emergent writers to speed the writing process.
