Last year, we decorated our bulletin boards and hung up our St. Patrick’s Day writing. This is an enhancement from last year’s post. We made the rainbow by making links with construction paper.
During the month of March, my students embark on a week long, writing process adventure. My first graders begin pre-writing in their journal all the way to typing their story on the computer and printing it to publish it. They write a story about find a pot of gold, rainbows, etc. At this point in the year, these kids just soar over the expectations set considering all of the background work that has gone into writing and speaking.
