Writing Update

Last week was a busy week for Writing. Thank you so much for all the parents and family who came to JUST WRITE. The kids had a blast showing off all their writing from the year and touring the school to see everyone else’s writing from the whole school.


We also celebrated our “All About” books. We spent the beginning of week creating a cover, dedication and about the author page for our books.  Then we turned our classroom into a NONFICTION MUSEUM and read our books to friends from Mrs. VanKoevering’s class and taught them all about our topics. We had so much fun writing, fancying, and sharing our “All About” books!!!

wheelbarrow-flower-pot-flowersYou may have noticed another field trip listed on our May/June calendar.  On Thursday, May 15, we will take a trip to N. Schut Greenhouses to learn more about how the sun helps plants grow.  This field trip is only for the students in our class and will last for a short half-hour to forty-five minutes.  We will definitely be back in time for our JUST WRITE Celebration which will begin at 2:45 in the afternoon on that same day.  Mark your calendars!!!  All parents, siblings, and grandparents are invited to join us to experience a first grade writing celebration and tour the school to check out the amazing writers at Georgetown!!!  JUST WRITE t-shirt orders were sent home last week.  If you would like to get a shirt, make sure to send in your order by May 7.

You are invited..

…to attend our first grade JUST WRITE celebration!!!

The big event will take place Thursday, May 17 at 2:45 pm.

Parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters are welcome to join us in Room 106 to experience our end of the year writing celebration. During our celebration, you will have a chance to read all of your child’s published writing from this school year, view classmate’s stories, take part in a toast and tour the school to read stories written by all of the teachers and students.

I can’t wait to see you there!

Just Write Celebration Book!

Our Just Write writing celebration is right around the corner, Thursday May 17.  Before spring break, the kids worked hard to revise and edit one of their stories from this year to get ready to show off to you at our celebration in May.  If you have never been to one of our Just Write Celebrations before, it is a chance for everyone at Georgetown to showcase the work that they have done throughout the year to grow as a writer.

One of the ways that we will be showcasing our work this year is by publishing a class book with one story from each of our first graders in Room 106.  We are shipping our stories off to the press later this week to be published and returned to our school by our celebration week.  We are working with a company called StudentTreasures.  They are allowing us to ship our stories to them and they will publish ONE free book for our classroom (whether parents choose to buy one or not).  In order for our classroom to receive our free copy, we do need to send home a parent note.  The parent note NEEDS to be filled out and returned to school for us to be able to receive our free copy of the class book.

PLEASE, do NOT feel that you need to purchase one of these books.  We just want to take advantage of the free copy and let the kids enjoy seeing their work in a published book.  But, you DO NOT need to purchase one unless you want to.  No pressure!  :)

I sent the parent notes home today, please fill them out and send them back to school ASAP.

Thanks so much for your support of our writers!
