Today we started to feel like grown up first graders! Literacy in first grade is a little different than Kindergarten. We have more responsibility and work more independently. Today we practiced working in two groups. Half of us read in the library while the other learned about synonyms. Then we switched. We're practicing working quietly and the building up our reading stamina.
Then we had our first writer's workshop. We're writing personal narrative stories about things that we have done. We certainly had a lot to say in our words and pictures!
