img_0230I spend an hour of my morning teaching groups to 1st-grade students within the classroom.  We’ve been working on lots of Interactive Writing skills to build up the foundational skills early readers need to become more successful and independent later in the school year.

img_0231We’ve been working on labeling pictures and then writing a group story based on our picture.  This helps show students CAP (Concepts About Print) such as where to start, directionality, return sweep to the left, spacing, capitals at the beginning, and periods at the end.  Students write known words on the chart paper and practice nearly known or new words on the white board in front of them.  This helps build up known reading and writing vocabulary.
