Today during writing time we worked on varying end punctuation to bring out our "teaching books" meaning! We learned that nonfiction writers choose ending punctuation that reflects how we are trying to speak. We know that periods are used when we want to tell facts. We learned that question marks are used when we want to ask questions, and we learned that exclamation marks are used when we want to tell something exciting!
We have also been learning about commas and colons and when to use them. One way is if we want to make a list! Take a look at our new visual chart we used today to edit our writing!
What we're learning in first grade. Students are also making comments in class! At home add to the posts, too.
