1. My group was tasked with writing a six word memoir that was both captivating to a child in the third grade and had punctuation, in the form of an exclamation point. We had hoped that the humour including in our memoir was interesting enough for the children to like.We jept the memoir light and humourous in hopes that it would stick with the audience.
2. I feel that our mini lesson was adequate enough for what it needed to be. It kept the children captivated, it was accompanied by a humourous photo and it was very light as well as possibly being relatable. A weakness however, of the memoir, would likely be the fact that the explanation also accompied with the photo and memoir, was confusing and over descriptive in certain ways. I believe it confused the children somewhat.
3. I learned that you have to be careful when working with small children not to belittle them or to intimidate them, but to find the right balance that is in between the two.
4. I think we should write stories (This is Creative Writing afterall), either just for our class or to somehow include the children with. I think it would be a great, fun and interesting learning experience.
