Scanned Activity
In both pictures, Meredith and Justin were asked to discuss their favorite animal, why they chose that animal, and what they liked best about the animal. Meredith response was that her favorite animal was the ostrich because it had a long neck, and pretty colors. She also said they were tall and beautiful animals and you can ride on them. I think she did an excellent job of drawing the ostrich and typing the essay. Besides asking about the spelling of certain words, Meredith really didn't ask any questions. She asked if I could print her out two copies of her essay because she wanted to take the other essay home so she could draw another picture. Justin's response to the question was that his favorite animal was a tiger. He said that he liked the orange and black skin of the tiger and that when he goes to the zoo with his family, the first animal he loves to visit is the tiger. Like MEredith, Justin really just asked questions about the spelling of words. I think he drew an excellent picture and he was excited to find out that I would be publishing his picture on the internet.
