Our First Graders celebrated being “published” authors and illustrators! This was facilitated by Mrs. Saltzman and the First Grade teachers during Writer’s Workshop.  Each child wrote a personal narrative using literary elements that real authors use such as dialogue, correct punctuation, descriptive and feeling words and so much more!

Mentor books written by real authors were read aloud and analyzed for things good writers use when they write.

They learned how to match their voices to the punctuation they used when reading their stories to a listener.

We are so proud of our First Graders’ growth in the areas of reading with expression and the craft of writing.
