How to write a 150 word OREO journal

Journals can be about any topic in your life! Weekends are a popular topic because we like to share about ourselves, but you can write about anything:)

Journals are to be 150 words max! We will have many other projects where you will write more than 150 words. We are using journals in this class to help us grow in our writing! The more you read, the better reader you become.The more you write, the better writer you become!

The more you read, you actually become a better writer because you are learning how to write from the best writers in the world, the AUTHORS! Let's get back to writing...

Our journals are written in the adapted/changed OREO writing style.

Original idea or opinion

Reasons why this is important or not important (you can have as many as you want of these)

Examples of the reasons (you can have as many as you want of these too!)

Original idea or opinion again to make a great conclusion

Let's see an example...

O: Over the weekend, I went to the beach, watched a movie with my sister, and studied with my mom.

R1: We went to Chigasaki beach on Saturday. It was burning hot that day I felt like melting.

E1: For example, it was so hot that I drank 3 bottles of water! The water was very cool and tasty!

R2: I also watched a funny movie with my sister. We laughed a lot!

E2: The name of the movie was Despicable Me. The minions are so funny and they often doing really funny things! We laughed so hard that our stomach hurt and my dad told us we were being too loud.

R3: On Sunday, I studied with my mom. I finished all my homework! It felt great that I was so committed that I felt like smiling by myself.

E3: For example, I was so committed that I didn't watch any TV that day until after I finished my homework. It was also nice to do the math homework with my mom.

O: This weekend was great. I went to the beach, watched Despicable Me, and finished all my homework! I'm looking forward to another great week!


When writing, it's a good idea to write about things you experienced with your 5 senses, so the reader can imagine it also! It's almost like you are bringing that person on a journey with your writing!

Have you ever imagined what Mr. Soong was experiencing when he tells his stories? It's the same with your writing. The more you read, the better writer you become, the more you write, the better speaker you become!

I have written all the places where I wrote about the 5 senses in bold letters. The colors are to show you that OREO writing is written in a way that is clear and easy to understand!

Enjoy your writing!

Mr. Soong
