10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 BLAST OFF!!! The First Graders at the Thong Lo campus have official launched their “Writer’s Workshop”. You may be asking yourself … what is a writer’s workshop and why are they important for kids at such a young age? Well, writing gives kids a voice and a chance to express their thoughts, feelings, and a way to get their points of view across. We here at Wells Thong Lo believe in building independence and giving kids a way to find their writer’s voice.
Our first book study was based on “Knuffle Bunny” written by Mo Willems. This was a great relatable book that helped our students understand a little bit more about fiction writing. Through the power of a great book the students now know how to hook their readers with a problem and a solution writing technique. We ended our book study by incorporating technology. The student used their best character voice to bring Knuffle Bunny to life with the help of CHATTERPIX.
Here are a few challenging activities that the First Graders have been working on:
