We've been working so much on opinion writing this year! Most of my firsties are able to develop a clear topic sentence, supporting details, and a concluding sentence all on their own now! This week each student wrote about which fruit they think is the tastiest. They turned out pretty sweet:). Instead of creating a craft with our writing this week, we made a fruit salad! I asked that each student bring one piece of fruit to add to the salad. As you'll notice from the pictures we ended up with a lot of fruit! The kids were in the classroom before the bell rang...eager to tell me about the fruits they brought. So cute!
Our beautiful salad!
Yes, I had a lot of chopping to do:)! Several students said, "Wow, we didn't know you were a cooker too...you can do everything!" First graders are so adorable.
