Spotlight on Ms. Hertert’s 1st Grade Classroom

First grade has been focusing on an author study the last few weeks during our read alouds. They have been exploring different books written by Doreen Cronin. We have been investigating writing styles, the use of different characters and making comparisons across books written by this same author. Last Friday our class brought one of her books to life with a reader’s theater play of Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type. Students really enjoyed being able to act out the characters we have been reading about as a class. This week we continued to immerse our selves in the stories written by Doreen Cronin. What started as a few students reading her books in our class library before our morning meeting, turned into all the students settling in and reading stories together. It is amazing to see our first graders so excited about reading!
