A few weeks ago, first graders completed a project I call "I Know an Old Lady-the Remix". During this project they find patterns in the story/song "I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" and then re-write the lyrics in any way they like. Below are some examples of our projects with illustrations. Way to go first grade!
***Please note that students were encouraged to use "first grade spelling" which encourages students to sound out words and write them like they sound. Its so important to focus on their amazing ideas at this time and help them express themselves in any way they can.
