This week we have continued working on "All About" books. We are working to write a beginning to our story to inform our readers what our topic is about, three to five facts about our topic, and an ending to summarize our book. It has been challenging to remember that "All About" books are NONFICTION books. We are training our brains to write facts, not personal narrative stories or teaching someone "how to" do something.
We've been working on our "fact fluency" ribbon. This ribbon focuses on addition/subtraction facts to 5. Our goal is that students are "fluent" or know those facts quickly. We have been providing students with opportunities to practice. Find the icon below on the English Landing Kindergarten Symbaloo. Once in ABCya, you will have to click on FIRST GRADE. Scroll down to NUMBERS. There are games that students can play to help with fact fluency.
