Moving through a Machine

Explore organization and sentence fluency in this Six-Traits lesson. After reading chapter three of Robert McCloskey's Homer Price, young writers work together to construct a paragraph inspired by the donut-making machine that is detailed in the book. Using the class paragraph as a model, and incorporating transition words, individuals or pairs create a description of an imaginary machine. You could use the procedures of this lesson with any piece of literature.
