The 1st Graders at Holy Cross School in KC read the book “My Room”. The book is about all the things the boy liked in his room. Students had to talk about what the boy liked. We did a think aloud about what the boy liked and the things the students like. Before writing, we discussed the importance of the capital letter I.

We also discusse how to spell the word like. I pointed out the word like has three sounds and a super silent letter at the end. While writing, I reinforced the use of good spacing and neat handwriting.

Students wrote about what they liked and drew a picture to go along with it.
