First grade is underway for real!! Today we did our first REAL writers workshop...the kids were amazing. It was hard to believe that I was in a 1st grade classroom and not a high school writing class. The kids listened to what I taught and really used it in their writing. They were quiet and focused! Unbelievable! They are great writers!
But of course real first grade is lots of fun and full of surprises too! Once a month we are lucky enough to get a visit from a former first grade teacher and very talented story teller, Aya (AKA Sarahjane). She shared three stories with us today. They left us laughing and thinking, they had some pretty important morals...like sharing, caring, and not being selfish. Stories are the best!
She also had three amazing knock, knock jokes. We had to hear them a few times to get it, but once they clicked we couldn't stop giggling. You might hear them at home tonight...
That's what owls say!
I'm excited to see you too!
Cow says, who?
NO Silly, Cows say MOO!
