Our Classroom

This is our classroom. Our first writing piece is a personal narrative; they're displayed on the closet doors. We went through the five steps of The Writing Process. First we did a Pre-Write, next, we wrote our Draft, then, we Revised by ourselves, then, our teacher Proofread our paper with us, last, we Published (and illustrated) and Presented. We took turns sharing our story.

Our culminating activity for Topic One of Math is on the bulletin board. We used a Part, Part, Whole model to show we understand addition and subtraction.
