Writing First grade has been busy writing! The children LOVE to write, and they love to share their writing with their classmates. We wrote an opinion piece we called "Duck/Rabbit". We read, the book, Duck! Rabbit! the children had to use evidence from the book to decide if the animal in the book was a duck or a rabbit. Our first official "research report" in first grade is on dinosaurs. The children partnered up and picked a dinosaur to learn all about! They worked really hard on their research and have collected so much information. We had a visit from POW science (thank you PTO!) to learn even more about dinosaurs. Our last writing pieces of the year will be hermit crab research and our end of the year memory writing. The children are all looking forward to sharing their writing with you and will do so at our end of the year writing celebration. This is a wonderful time to see all of your child's writing and growth they have made over the course of first grade!
