Writer's Workshop - SNoT - Show, Not Tell!

Hello Seesaw Users! For this activity, you need to use all the "SNoT" you can manage... to 'Show, Not Tell'! On each page of the template, there are simple statements that need to be 'up-levelled' so to evoke more feeling in one's writing. Adding SNoT to your writing makes it more powerful in many ways, for example, for the reader, they can build a clearer picture of what is going in their mind as they read your writing. One has been done for you, with a voice recording. The examples on the cover page of this activity give you some tips on how you might get across some different feelings. Add a sentence to each of the pages as a label below the title of the page, which is the simple sentence. Write a minimum of 3 sentences per page. Add a voice recording to your writing to help get across the emotion by using the microphone button. Try and read it in a way to evoke that feeling. COMPUTING CHALLENGE: Can you prove you are a super-user of Seesaw and change you label styles, font colours and background of your writing to match the mood...?! Have fun
