First-Graders Share Their Authored Works

Students in Mr. Trass' and Mrs. Hill's first-grade classes have spent 10 weeks working on writing stories, and on Nov. 29 they had a chance to show off their illustrated work to friends and parents who stopped by.


Using a workshop approach, the students have been:

  • using sketching to initiate ideas
  • crafting stories around a beginning, middle, and end 
  • revising their work through writing "twin sentences," adding dialogue, etc.  
  • editing their work through use of the word wall and word list.
