The Class of 2027 recently shared their original compositions at a writing celebration entitled, "Second Grade's Gripping Fiction Stories." The authors read their works aloud to an admiring audience of first graders who were, indeed, "gripped" by what they saw and heard.
The second graders have been refining their skills in the realm of fiction by writing pieces about "small moments" in their lives, take-offs on current favorites, or tales from their imaginations. They have built on the skills and strategies learned just a year ago and were happy to give their first grade teachers a bit of the credit. Likewise, those teachers were proud of the progress their former students have made.
