First graders will have opportunities this year to publish a variety of writing pieces including fiction and nonfiction.
Our writing workshop consists of selecting and growing a topic, researching, drafting, revising, and editing. Students will have opportunities to work with partners to talk about their ideas, share their writing, and revise their work.
Crafting complete sentences is an important skill first graders learn this year. It is important for our writers to use capital letters at the beginning of their sentences and punctuation. Writing should be able to convey ideas, therefore it is important for writers to be clear and neat. We encourage our writers to form their letters correctly and use adequate spacing between their words.
