First graders have been fancying up one of their small moment stories by editing and revising. They began by learning how to use the tools around them like the word wall, alphabet chart, and blends chart. They also learned how to use a checklist to check for things like spaces between their words, periods at the end of a sentence, and capital letters to begin a new sentence. First graders looked in their stories to make sure they completed each item on the checklist. They also added details to their illustrations and, finally, made a cover page! They studied the cover pages of other beloved authors like Peter Reynolds, Leo Lionni, and Mac Barnett to see what makes a cover page “good.” They learned that it should grab attention and also give the reader a sneak peak about the book. We cannot wait for you to see the published products soon!
