Central Elementary School’s kindergarten classes got together to celebrate their "How To/Informational" writing unit. The students worked hard throughout the unit to construct step-by-step books over topics of their choice. The genre of this unit weaves together drawing with labels and writing.
Central’s four kindergarten teachers, Ms. Elliot, Mrs. Hamilton, Mrs. Pottorff, and Mrs. White, began the celebration by explaining the writing rubric, writing examples and the students’ goals throughout the unit. They also invited parents and grandparents to the celebration. The students got to read to their parents, other teachers and other students. Curriculum coaches, the counselor and other staff members were in attendance listening to and supporting the students. Participating was kindergartner Haidi Le with her brother, Axton Le, and their grandmother, Tracy Dix.
