We are working on revising our writing about Birds in first grade. I am teaching my first graders that writing is a process. We started our writing before vacation.
- First, we write down our ideas.
- Then we reread, add details, revise and make corrections.
Today we used our spacemen to check for spacing. I found these adorable spacemen over at www.lovehugsandladybugs.blogspot.com . The children loved the 'spacemen' and 'spacewomen' to check for spacing.
This is the practice page we did for correct spacing between words.
Next, I handed out a writing checklist. We read and discussed the checklist. You may find the checklist HERE.
