Check Out our Bio Poems and Portraits

Students finished writing their Bio Poem this week and they will now be moving on to animal research!  

Yes, their writing is amazing but look at these portraits!!  Can you believe first graders did these?!

I absolutely LOVE kid's artwork and also LOVE that I don't have to give too many directions.  I showed them they'd be finishing the other half of their face and we talked about symmetry.  Then they went off to work.  

Here are the finished ones.

I'll be adding the rest here as students finish them up so check back.

Learn More About a Friend by Writing a Biography

Last week students interviewed a friend in class that they didn't know very well.  They had interview questions and then wrote a biography, which is now a class book.  This packet is at my TpT Store (Biographies) if you're interested!

Here they are at work.

This week students will be writing a Bio Poem and will pick an animal they'd like to research!

Newsletter for the Week of April 3rd

There might be a typo on the newsletter sent home on Friday.  Our field trip to the Planetarium is Monday the 3rd.
