3rd and 1st Graders Come Together to Celebrate The Art of Writing!

As the 3rd Grade was planning their Personal Narrative Unit last spring, they felt they needed to expose their students to more narrative texts.  As a result, the 3rd grade teachers incorporated more read alouds into their unit, using stories from Expeditionary Learning and reading the Character Education books.  Ms. Castellano also collaborated with the 3rd Grade team in order to push into each classroom the focus on narrative elements their students needed to write a story. 

 3rd graders read and dissected their stories to the 1st graders.

Now, it was finally time for the 3rd Graders to share their own stories with the 1st Graders and spread their learning about narrative elements to others! On November 3rd, The 1st and 3rd grade teachers worked together to create a successful Writing Celebration!

 Each 3rd grade class paired-up with a different 1st grade class.
