|Today we wrote about the Snow Goose, since we have |
been seeing flocks of them fly over the school.
I chose a bird that is in our area now or will be showing up soon in migration. They copy the sentences, draw the bird and then practice reading what they wrote. They really like this activity! The next step will be for them to come up with sentences on their own. Being able to be a good writer is very important for the Common Core Standards and for testing when the students are in third grade and above, so it is important that they practice writing their thoughts or write stories as much as possible. This would be a good thing to work on over the long summer break as well.
