We are authors ! We celebrated the end of our writing unit . Students had the opportunity to write teaching books. Students were taught how to think up a topic, draw it, and then do their best approximation of writing. Students used letters as well as pictures to represent meaning. They also developed phonemic awareness as they stretched out, listened to, distinguished and recorded the sounds in a word.
