Readers in Room 123 began a new unit of study during Language Studies: folktales. They started by listening to and then analyzing Grandma Lena’s Big Ol’ Turnip.
This text also served as the introduction to a new type of writing: how-tos. First grade writers worked as a class to help the Grandma Lean teach the others how to grow turnips. Below you can see writers sketching the steps, the first step in the writing process.
Here is the final draft!
Next week, students will use the same process to write their own how-tos.
