The first grade students came back to school after the holiday break ready to share all the fun things that they had done. We talked about their activities and then they wrote about them. They loved reading these to their friends and now are very excited to see them displayed in the Van Allen hallways for others to read.
Another writing activity our students participated in was writing goals for our new year 2015. We brainstormed ideas about setting goals. They chose the topic of how to become a better student. They came up with great ideas such as to make your stories more interesting to read we need to add more details, listen to whoever is talking so we can learn more, we need to treat everyone with respect and many more ideas. They were very excited to read these to each other. Our first graders get excited when they get to share what they have written. We love to see the smiles on their faces when they see their accomplishments.
