Experiences That Count

First grade started off the month of December with a letter writing unit.  Students are learning about each part of a letter.  First graders will experience real-world applications through writing to pen pals, classmates, family and friends.  Teachers will support this investigation by modeling it, reading about it, looking at examples, editing, whole group lessons and small group mini lessons.  To finish this meaningful experience, students will be able to mail one letter. They will also get to receive mail from their pen pals.  The first graders are really excited about this unit!
