mac laptops and pages application.


I created the template for the children's book and copied and pasted it into each student's folder and shared students final draft samples.


I will model for students how to access their student folder on the public server and then locate the children's book template.  I will show them they need to scroll down until they see the text box that states, "begin typing here."  I will instruct them that they need to click in the box, erase my typing and then begin typing their papers.


I will use their final 18 page children's books and assess based on them being formatted correctly as I modeled and instructed.  I will also assess them based on conventions, sentence fluency, voice and neatness of hand produced illustrations.
