Writing about Christmas

Inserted Image

The first graders used the Highlighter Method to help them organize their thoughts into a sequential story about their Christmas break.  They used a green highlighter for the topic and conclusion.  A yellow highlighter was used for the three 'big ideas' or main ideas that they want to include in their story.  We have started to 'pink it up' as well, which allows the students to add more thoughts after each 'big idea.'  The students enjoy using the highlighters and quick pictures to help them remember what they want to include in a story.
