November News

 Our schools put together a monthly newsletter for families.  This month, the Grade 1s worked hard to write their very own news!  This was another great opportunity for students to write for a real purpose and for a real audience, so I really enjoyed the time we spent on this shared writing activity.  We learned about putting sentences together in paragraphs and I introduced the idea of topic sentences.  We also practiced using letter sounds, blends and letter combinations to spell words.  I was very proud of my students' work!

We hope you enjoy reading our November update!
