This was a big week in writing workshop! At the beginning of the week, we read the book "Night Of The Veggie Monster". First graders LOVE this book, so we started a list of 'craft moves' the author used, and the purpose behind these craft moves. For example, he uses action words to help create a movie in the readers mind! First graders are now reading books from authors they loved and learning new techniques they can include in their own writing.
First graders also chose one of their stories they are going to publish. They started an editing checklist and will keep working on edits next week!
