Writing First grade has been busy writing! The children LOVE to write, and they love to share their writing with their classmates. We continue work on informative and explanatory writing. The children name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and we will now be focusing on providing a sense of closure. To support this we have completed many pieces of informational writing, including and information piece of bat writing, the first Thanksgiving pilgrim writing.
In addition to information writing, our class had a very special visit from the Gingerbread Man! We read two versions of the Gingerbread Man. We compared and contrasted the two versions using a venn diagram. The next day, we received a special delivery from the Gingerbread Man himself! He asked us to rewrite the ending of his story so he didn't get eaten by the tricky fox. The kids can't wait to share their new version of the ending with you!
We will begin our trip around the world to see how other countries celebrate the holidays! We will be writing about each country we visit.
