This week in grade 1, we tried our hand at "dwriting" - drawing and writing combined!
I gave my students small pictures of classroom objects, numbers, "il y a" sentence starter, and blank squares (for them to give a colour). In partners, they made sentences. Then they shared them with the class.
After this I gave them the same sheet and they repeated the activity independently in their journals! They were so excited by the amount of sentences they were able to "dwrite", and happily read them to me as they finished them. We had so much fun with this!
