Tater's first school report

Tater's first grade class was given their first major report assignment last week. They had to choose an animal and write a "report" about it. The report had to be at least ten sentences...that they could read to the class...and had to include at least one picture. Tater chose the shark of course. That is his favorite animal of the moment. He and I went to library and checked out a few books about sharks. I know we could have done it on the computer, which would have been a lot faster, but I wanted him to do it the "old fashioned" way (as he called it). We had a good time actually. He helped me pick the pictures to include as well. He took a real shark tooth to share with his class and even drew his own picture to include with the report. He (and I) learned a lot.

  1. Oh,I love it. My first grader had to do one, too. He chose the tiger. I don't remember doing reports in 1st grade.


Yippee! I love it when you leave me comments. Thanks a bunch. :)
