model magic figures

On Friday, Sept. 27th, Miss Dounis and Mrs. Corush’s sixth grade writing classes at Middle School South got ready to write their own personal narratives.  For the students to fully understand the writing process, they used Model Magic to create their own pencil cases.  Students had to brainstorm their sculpture, redo it and fix it multiple times, start over, discuss ideas, create rough drafts, edit, revise, and be proud of a final product.  While working, students were able to understand that this process is exactly like writing a story.  These sixth graders were super excited and proud of their final products.
