Yesterday the class worked on updating their journals.
Each student selected a memory from the field trip or information they have learned about pumpkins to write about. The amount of thoughtful details that the children put into the pictures was impressive.
They paid close attention to color, scale, and background. They were also very careful in their writing. Some of the children wrote with squiggly lines, some used letters they have seen, others recorded the initial letter sounds of each word in their sentence, and a few heard the middle and ending sounds of some words.
