Spotlight on Ms. Hertert’s Class

First grade writers

This week our first graders wrote silly stories using the prompt “I came to school today, only to find it had turned into a…..” students took this idea-starter and wrote amazing stories about our school turned into things like: a super hero lab, a spaceship zoo, a secret portal, and a frozen palace. Our class has been working really hard at starting with a big picture idea and then “zooming in” to add details that will help paint a picture in the reader’s mind. This project was a great way for them to practice this skill.

Toward the end of the week, our class had a chance to read their stories to their Kindergarten reading buddies in Mrs. Oliver’s class. Kindergarten also shared books they had made in their own class that week as well. The kids loved having the chance to learn from one another and share their work.
