Finally we finished our " I am a Scientist" story and it is now up on our bulletin board. Take a look below...pretty cute huh! They were soooo excited to see their work posted! Now we are on to apple writing. Common Core standards (W.1.2.) expects first grade students to write informative/explanatory texts. Because we are a Thinking Maps/Write From the Beginning, all three types of writing Common Core expects first graders to master will work perfectly with both Thinking Maps and Write From the Beginning. Our first graders are well on their way to becoming fabulous little writers!
Again, thanks Cara for your great idea-we had a BLAST!
