Print In many ways, 1st grade is a year of important transitions — children leave behind much of the play of preschool and kindergarten and dive into developing deeper academic skills. First graders progress from having beginner reading and writing skills to becoming beginning readers and writers, as they not only read and write more often, but with greater comprehension and ability, too. First grade is a crucial year for building reading skills. In 1st grade, students begin to define themselves with respect to what kind of readers they are.
Write sentences and fragments on the board. A cat ran up a tree. Jack skipped up the hill. The shiny blue car. We all know what words are. A sentence is a group of words that is complete in itself. Also there should be a verb, which describes what the noun is doing or what the noun is.
Discuss each example and lead the students to understand that the sentence at least has a subject and a verb.
Give the students the magazines, scissors, glue stick, and 4"x4" construction paper. Allow only 15 minutes for them to find two nouns, cut them out and glue them to the construction paper. You may want to hold up a magazine and give them a few examples. Gather the papers and place them face down on the floor or table.
Instruct students to choose one square and return to their desks. Instruct the students to look at their nouns and come up with one verb that tells what the noun is doing or what the noun is.
Have each student stand and share. Then ask another student to put the words together in a short sentence. The picture is a baby The person holding the picture says a verb: Writing a sentence is like making a sandwich.
The bread is the noun or subject. The meat is the verb. But sometimes we like to have more things on the sandwich: For a sentence, extra words that describe the subject or the verb can be added. Ask for suggestions of words that could describe the nouns.
For example, you could say the shiny car or the furry cat. Write a few examples on the board as you brainstorm.Title – Writing Expository Introductions and Conclusions By – Jamie Danford Primary Subject – Language Arts.
