We read a couple books about spring to spark interest and start our discussion:
My kiddos LOVE to write lately. Their confidence is growing and I love it! We decided to write about what we are GOING to do in spring, what we CAN do in spring, or what we LIKE to do in spring. I like giving my students a prompt for writing but this allowed them to have some options still. Here is the final product for our hallway!
|"In the Spring we like to..."|
|"In the spring I like to play with my sistr"|
Also, while doing assessments, I got this from one of my first graders. The paper is supposed to say "The boy is riding his bike. He can go very fast on it." Too funny!
