Writing Workshop in the Outdoors

We have been having such nice weather that it is absolutely necessary to get outside and enjoy it!  We went outside for two writing times and enjoyed our surroundings, looking and listening and then doing some writing.

One thing we did observe and wonder about was “What is on these leaves?”.  The students went home with this question as their homework.

We found out that the spots are called “tar spot” and more information can be found here.
