2nd grade students had their first experience sharing their small moment work with family and friends this past Tuesday. Everyone came together to celebrate students efforts to publish their Small Moment personal narrative work. Students spent the months leading up to their Writing Celebration learning how to stretch and add details to their small moments stories. They also worked to craft their stories using mentor author texts as their guide. Students used texts such as Owl Moon, Roller Coaster, The Snowy Day and Fireflies! to study techniques that authors use to make stories engaging for other readers. 2nd grade writers also worked through the revision and editing process with great enthusiasm. They reread their stories throughout the revision and editing processes which helped them read their pieces fluently. Kudos to our 2nd grade writers!. They are off to a great start in the area of writing and we look forward to celebrating more milestones with them this year!
