Bulletin Board: Common Core and Technology For First Grade


 The purpose of this bulletin board was to display the work of four students who used the computer to write a fiction story. The characters in their story were taken by our recent Kevin Henkes Author Study and the setting was the field trip to Diamond D Ranch. With this background, they got to work "tip tappin" each day until their story was completed.  According the Common Core Standards for First Grade in Writing it says:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.W.1.6 With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers. All of them completed this project on their own each day during Writer's Workshop. They typed their stories, added clip art, and drew their own pictures digitally. By incorporating technology into our daily lessons, we are not only meeting the standard but we are making lessons interesting, challenging, and fun for the class.

Wow - it is just amazing what these 1st graders are learning - I don't even know if I could do that project myself! Great teachers and teaching methods!
