Recently, I read through all of the stories in each child's writing folder. I left them some notes and I found some great stories I thought I would share with you. You will see more great stories written by your child tomorrow at Student-Led Conferences. Below each writing sample, I try to "translate" what each child has written. You will see a wide range of writing skills in a first grade class and that is very normal. Enjoy the stories.

 I went on a bike ride. I saw two snakes. I saw a dead beetle. Ezra screamed. We left. I went to go get a drink. Then I went to get a popsicle.

 Try and Try and Perseverance (a book about one of our character traits)

 I saw a snake at my grandma's house. It was a garden snake. It was medium sized.

 The Broncos won the Broncos game on Sunday 24 to 17. The Broncos are winning almost all year.

 One day I saw a snake on the road. It was a rattlesnake. And the snake didn't get run over by a car.

 It was a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake. We were very close to it.

 Today I went to Ms. Zina's garden. We saw a ladybug. I holded it in my hands. I let it go.

4. You are a good athlete.

 Gavin is so excited to be the teacher's helper.

 What do you think? What did you like about the story? (These questions were at the end of a story asking for reader feedback.)

 I went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. I had so much fun. I fed lettuce to the giraffe and there was a baby giraffe, too.

A hummingbird can flap its wings 100 times per second. A hummingbird needs nectar from flowers every 10 minutes.
