Lights, Camera, Action!
Ideas and Content- Why hello Organization, Voice, Word Choice, Sentence Fluency, and Conventions.
Organization- Why hi, how do you do Ideas and Content?
Ideas and Content- I’m ok.
Conventions- My goodness I’m so hungry I can eat a whole cow!
Sentence Fluency- There, there Conventions, don’t worry, Voice brought many appetizing treats.
Conventions- Oh, okay.
Voice- Word Choice, why do you like so sad? Are you okay? Did something happen? Are you hungry? Are you tired? Are you bored? Will you tell me what’s wrong? Is your kitty, puppy, turtle, pony, fish, ferret, guinea pig, hamster, ch-
Ideas and Content- Voice, please can’t you see Word choice is trying to think? You know she is very quite and doesn’t talk when she is trying to think, please if you think she is sad, than you are wrong.
Word Choice- I’m ok. I was just thinking about what our appreciative, beautiful, creative, delightful, enthusiastic, fantastic, good, helpful, jumpy, k-
Organization- How can we be jumpy?
Voice- Or interesting? Yes, I agree on the rest but-
Ideas and Content- Organization and Voice, why didn’t you let Word Choice finish talking?
Word Choice- Oh, its ok Ideas and Content, It doesn’t really matter. Besides, I’m really used to it.
Conventions- Ideas and Content, Word Choice, Organization, Voice, and Sentence Fluency, I think we should stop all of this chitchat and get going to our meeting room, you know the room we have meetings in.
Ideas and content- You’re right Conventions, we should get a move on.
Sentence Fluency- Can we eat first? Can we? What’s the meeting about? How long will it last? Are you ready? Am I ready? Are all of you-
Ideas and Content- Sentence Fluency, we are in this important meeting today because we have to discuss an awful Writing assignment that a teacher sent to us. She sent it to us because she wants us to check over one of her students’ paper. Just imagine, the girl is in 5th grade! And she has never used US in her writing assignments.
Word Choice- Well, that little 5th grade girl should be ashamed of herself for not using us in any of her 5th grade writing assignments!
Sentence Fluency-Is her paper clear? Are her details in order? Did she state her opinion? Did she use exciting words? Did she have complete sentences? Did she have space between her words?
Ideas and Content- That’s why we are here today to check her awful paper, and we will help the little girl get a good idea of how important we all are. We will write back a letter talking about how the 5th grade girl can improve her writing.
Conventions- I guess we should enter the meeting room. We have to start quickly. We’ve spent almost an hour out here.
Ideas and content- Word Choice, do you have the folder that contains the girl’s writing assignment?
Word choice- Yes, I do.
Sentence Fluency- Ideas and Content, can you read the paper to us now that we are in the room?
Ideas and Content- Of course I will, everybody please take notes on this, remember your jobs. The girls name is Chelsea
“My kitty and me
My kiity is purty; my kitty is orange like Garfield
Sentence Fluency- Goodness this child wrights awful. No wonder she got an F-. We definitely need to write this girl a letter that clearly states how to improve her writing.
My name is Ideas and Content. After I read your paper, I was a little bit confused. One reason was because you had many, many spelling errors. The 2nd reason was because your topic didn’t make any sense at all. The 3rd reason was because your topic had nothing to do with your title. I’m a little concerned about your writing. I would gladly appreciate it if you would right back and send us another writing assignment you have done in 5th grade. I would also like it if you could ask the student in you class that has the best grades in writing to send us one of her/his writing assignments. Then we could compare both writing assignments. We will also grade your paper and the other child’s paper.
Ideas and Content.
Sentence Fluency- I guess we are finished with this meeting.
Ideas and content- Actually we aren’t finished yet. As soon as Chelsea
Word Choice- I think she’ll send us a letter later. Write now what we have to do is get some rest and some food to eat.
Ideas and Content- you are right. Let’s go to sleep. Good night everybody.
Did you like the play? Would you like to write a letter to one of the members of “The Six Traits of writing?
