My 1st graders are going to the zoo this week. I had the teachers break them into partners, with each pair having a high reader. I gave them each an easy text book about zoo animals. They read the book together and then each wrote a sentence about something they learned. Next week we will type a postcard, on a template that I modified from another Library Media Specialist, to their teacher. After they have typed their sentences, they will import a picture of their animal on their postcard. Once we get finished I'll post an example.
