Over the last few weeks, writers in Room 123 have been hard at work creating All About First Grade! First, the class brainstormed a list of subtopics to write about. After narrowing those down to twelve chapters, students worked in pairs to draft and revise those chapters. Finally, they planned and took the photos to illustrate their chapters.
[Technical note: I had hoped to publish this as a single book. However, the only publishing sites I found that allow both photos and extended text also include advertising when a book is published. Since I didn’t want the advertising on our blog, I used Smilebox to publish the book in three parts.]
First grade writers will be sharing their book with our blog readers and with the Senior Kindergarten classes at Richards. Enjoy all three parts of All About First Grade below!
