4th Marking Quarter Writing Tasks
Students will practice using Mad Libs to practice and review parts of speech. Then they will incorporate writing and their deeper understanding of the parts of speech to create their own Mad Libs. Their draft will be a quiz grade and the final product will be a writing grade.
Students will create an Acrostic using their name. They must select adjectives and nouns that describe or identify an aspect of their personality. The Acrostic should be completed so that every other word either begins or ends with a letter from their name.

Students will compose a letter to incoming 6th grade students addressing some of the fears and anxiety they may face as new middle school students.
The Thank You Letter
Students will compose a meaningful letter that appropriately expresses gratitude to someone (friend, parent, teacher) as they leave middle school and begin high school.
