|Personalize a free collage|
It was exciting to see how focused and interested they were and I so enjoyed hearing their stories and helping them get their ideas down on paper. Some of the best moments I noticed was when they were sitting thinking of an idea. I did not hear a single complaint about getting started, but rather saw them thinking and puzzling through what they were going to write about that day. I was so impressed at how well all the students did getting to work and sticking with it. The room was quiet except for the scratching of pencils and the whispers of sounding out words and in a first grade classroom, that is saying something!
