A Map of Our Hearts

We are diving right into Writer's Workshop with our Unit on Personal Narratives. The students are taking turns telling stories and today we made "Maps of Our Hearts".  Each student created a heart shaped map marked with topics of great importance.  I will hang the maps in the classroom for the students to refer to in the future for topic ideas for the Personal Narratives we will be writing.  

We started our lesson with My Map Book, by Sara Fanelli. This creative book helped the students formulate ideas for their maps! It is a a great book for this project!

Designing our maps...
Time to paint!
