1st Grade Classes


In first grade we are going to be working with alliteration.  We will be reading the book, "Amazing Alphabet Alliteration About Animals" by Monica Lo and illustrated by Mizbah Lattif.  This book will give the students an idea of what alliteration is and how creative they can get with it.  

Once they understand what alliteration is they will be assigned a letter and will do their own alliteration sentences on a rough written draft.  After that draft is written, they will transfer their story to the computer using a program named Pixie and they will draw a picture in Pixie to go with their words.
