What do the Flintstones and the Neolithic Age have in common?  According to LMS 7th graders, not much.  After exploring how the “real” Stone Age people lived, students were challenged to contrast the Flintstones cartoon with the people from the Neolithic Age.  The students’ writing skills were put to the test.  Thanks to our school wide effort to use The Write Tools with students’ writing, teachers have the opportunity to help students improve their writing skills in every subject.  Topic sentence, supporting detail, conclusion sentence – these common phrases are what our students relate to when writing.  Is writing an easy process for our students?  Not yet, but we are on the right path to becoming better writers.
