The Grade 1 ESL students have been so busy learning and writing about their families lately! In ESL we have learned powerful adjectives to use when we describe people and we have used them to write about our family members, using a wonderfully funny book as mentor text: "My Dog Is As Smelly As Dirty Socks", by Hanoch Piven. We also drew beautiful pictures of the people we chose to describe, and we proudly displayed them for all to see.
We were very happy and surprised today when our writing was appreciated and rewarded by Ms. Dingle. Each amazing grade 1 ESL writer received a medal for wonderful writing and also a sweet surprise! Thank you very much, Ms. Dingle and well done, Grade 1 ESL!
