Great day in first grade today!! These kids make me smile!! Today we had a big discussion about the reasons writers write books, and why readers read books. I was trying to get them to realize that authors write books to Persuade, Inform, and Entertain. You know...author's purpose...PIE. I let them brainstorm individually, and with a friend. Then we put their ideas on our new anchor chart. I think they came up with some pretty amazing ideas! Then we brainstormed some reasons why readers read. This list was even better!!! I think their ideas are even better than PIE!!!
Way to go kiddos!!
