Acacia first graders were busy in the month of November. Students wrote many personal narratives about a small moment. They read mentor texts to see how other writers show their small moments and learned many ways a personal narrative can be written. Students chose their favorite small moment and went through the publishing process and created their own book. We shared our stories during our writers celebration.
The first graders also performed "The Turkeys Go On Strike" musical play. Students sang their way as turkeys, squash, cranberries, Pilgrims, and Native Americans telling the story why we should not eat turkey on Thanksgiving. They learned many fun songs. The best part was performing for family and friends. Acacia first graders had a wonderful month.
