Fishing with Grandpa, Color It Up!

We read the essay, "Fishing with Grandpa,"  from the new book, Fun-Size Academic Writing for Serious Learning, (coming from Corwin at the end of the summer) and did the activity, using colors to find the four kinds of text.  That resulted in four icons, four kinds of text, to begin a "writer's tools" list in the classroom.  As they learn more, students can add to their own personal copy of icons in their journals .
