Sharing our writing with the boys from SMIS
On Friday June 1st, the grade 1s from Seisen met up with the boys from SMIS at Kinuta Park to have their final writing celebration.
On Friday June 1st, the grade 1s from Seisen met up with the boys from SMIS to have their final writing celebration. Over the course of the year we met up three times to celebrate the writing achievements of the grade 1 students from both of our schools. Both SMIS and Seisen students participate in the Writer's Workshop program and it has been great to share our understandings between the teaching faculty and the students as well.
For our final writing celebration we decided to make it even more special. We met at Kinuta Park under the leafy trees and shared our realistic fiction stories and some of our opinion pieces too. We were so lucky to have a gorgeous weather day! The students gave each other compliments about their writing and were such attentive and respectful listeners to each other when they were sharing. It really was something to see. There were stories about tree houses and storms, of characters getting sick and many stories of children making new friends. It has been amazing to see the growth of the children and their writing abilities over the course of the year. They have all worked so hard.
After the writing celebration, the children had a chance to play in the fantastic new playground at Kinuta Park that now includes a flying fox. You can imagine that the line was long for that one! Take a look at the slideshow below to see all the fun had during our final writing celebration.
We look forward to the opportunity to continue this collaboration and sharing with the students and staff at SMIS.
