Our final take home writing project for the year is an insect report. I use these because we are just finishing up our science unit on insects and ALL first graders love insects. It is such an engaging topic for them to explore and write about. This year I was amazed by the work they turned in. On Friday we had our author's celebration and each student presented their report and visual. Here are a few highlights. I'm also including the documents I used to send home to parents if you're interested.
I have been teaching 12 years, all of them in grades k-2. I am currently teaching a k-1st loop and loving it.( I have my bachelor and master degrees in elementary education and last year I earned my National Board Certification in Early Childhood Education. I have 2 darling daughters (most of the time) and a wonderful husband, Mr. M. I love cooking, doing anything in the outdoors and traveling.
