April 27, 2016 - Miss Dennis and Mrs. Foley's 1st grade class has been studying opinion writing during their Writer's Workshop. Each student in the class wrote a book review about their favorite book. The children's goal was to come up with strong enough reasons to persuade someone to take the book out of the library. As a culminating activity, the children watched book reviews from the television series, "Reading Rainbow". Seeing children their own age on the show reading book reviews like the ones that they wrote got the class inspired to try it out for themselves! In the process, the children also learned about being a fluent reader and strong speaker. Click on the links below to see our own first grade "Reading Rainbow":
Hopefully, you will be persuaded to go to the library and read some of the book the students recommended! Miss Dennis and Mrs. Foley are so proud of the students that participated. Great job, first graders!
