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,
Our travels around the world to see how other countries celebrate the holidays has been exciting! We visited, Italy, Sweden, Mexico, Africa, Israel, Australia, and America. The children wrote about each country we visited. Their writing will be saved for their end of year portfolio. Check out the pix below to see how we celebrated our return to America on the Polar Express!
In January we will explore narrative writing. Students will work on writing narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure.
