First graders are in the midst of learning about those very interesting birds, penguins! They have, and continue to collect information from multiple sources including books, online resources, and nonfiction poems. This afternoon we read a poem about the rockhopper penguin, and they also got to color in a picture of one to show its unique feather patterns and colorings. We have been working together to gather the information, and now the students are creating their own nonfiction chapter books about these special birds. They began by writing their chapter titles, and are currently in the process of writing the chapters. We have a class full of wonderful writers!!
