What is Your Snowman's Name?
Miss Holtgrewe's first graders have been working hard with writing complete sentences. Each student created their very own snowman and gave it a name. The students each wrote three complete sentences about their snowman. If you ask each of the first graders, they would tell you their sentences need 5 things in order to be a complete sentence.
- Every sentence needs to start with an uppercase letter.
- Every sentence needs to end with punctuation.
- Every sentence needs to have finger spaces.
- Every sentence needs to have their letters formed correctly.
- Every sentence needs to make sense.
The students also worked with estimation. Miss Holtgrewe created a snowman out of cotton balls and the students had to estimate how many cotton balls it took to make it. Each student did a great job on their estimations. Selah Poppinga was the closest to the total. Selah had guessed 120 cotton balls. The final count was 124 cotton balls.
