January in first grade is all about owls. We've been practicing Owl Moon. We're getting quite good at projecting our voices and reading with expression and fluency. We've also been researching up a storm. Today we started to write our owl chapter books. The name of the game here is organization. Each chapter should be focused on just one topic, like habitats, babies, or diet. Each chapter should also have a hook, a topic sentence, lots and lots of details, and a concluding sentence. Here we are working hard as always!
