First graders spend time in the Shared Space creating amazing paintings of what they are studying. In the classroom, they make labels for these paintings to let viewers know more about the work of art. Even in writing a label notecard, students follow the writing process.
First they brainstorm ideas. Sometimes this is just thinking of words everyone will need to use like “made”, “has”, “painted”, and more.
Second, they write their first draft. The assignment is to write three sentences about their painting.
Third, they check their own work and circle words they want help with.
Fourth, they get a teacher check and help with words
Fifth and finally, they write the final draft and put it on the wall with their painting!
The Moon class has been working through the steps as they look at their vehicle paintings. They share details about how they painted it, the important details in, and what kind of vehicle it is!
