Writing First grade has been busy writing! The children LOVE to write, and they love to share their writing with their classmates. In March we focused on narrative writing. The children wrote personal narratives or"seed stories". They took a big idea (a day at the beach) and narrowed it down to a small moment (building a sand castle). They did a great job stretching out their small moments. The students also wrote a narrative about what they would do if they were the tooth fairy! We dove back into opinion writing, with a piece of writing titled, "Hey, Little Ant". The students had to decide if they should squish the ant or let it free. They also wrote and opinion piece based on the book, "Duck/Rabbit". After April vacation we will revisit information writing with a Dinosaur Report!
