In first grade, students create an eBook. We do an animal research investigation and each student creates an eBook from the research. While our guests are in our room, each student plays their eBook and stands at the front of the room.
(The next few pictures are from parents)
The disks on their desks have the all the picture slideshows and each students' eBook for them to keep!
As you'd expect, the students are VERY EXCITED! It is such fun!
Parents texted me these pictures to share since I didn't have a chance to take pictures.
Once the presentations are finished, students share their writing from the year with their families during this time too.
Here are a few pictures of what is on the desks from our year.
School beginnings writing saved from the first week
All About Me flip up book
What makes a sentence
Veterans Day Writing
Writing Center Writing I didn't keep ALL their daily writing, but I did keep some where I felt that the student had shown growth or that it was special in some way.
Daily writer's workshop lessons
(Engaging writing vol. 3 paper shown- Student preferred)
Special science and social studies lessons were also saved. Many times science and social studies was the inspiration for our writing. It all fit together so I wanted to keep it as a large portfolio of different avenues of writing.
Acrostic Rainbow Namebows hung proudly on the windows
To make the writing folders I just kept it simple. I wanted each student to be the big focus!
As far as seeing the process of writing, I kept certain writings out of this because we are supposed to keep a district portfolio for each student. In this portfolio, there must be work that has been through the entire writing process. Those pieces are not shown in any of these pictures.
Each grade level focused on different ways to share their students' writing.
Our district enjoyed a Friday off and we still have 7 more days with our students.
On Friday while at home, I received our gifts for parent volunteers in the mail. We are so excited! Aren't they cute? I found them HERE.
Have a terrific week!
