The Tribes Bulletin Board for April was done by the first grade. Their focus was the Tribes Agreement: “Safety with Body and Heart.”
The students did a writing piece based on the essential question: How can I use what I know about realistic fiction to share how others can show “safety with body and heart?”
First graders learned how realistic fiction authors create fictional characters and place them in real life adventures/situations. Students were taught how a realistic fiction story includes a beginning, middle, end, setting, problem and a solution. The students also learned how to bring their stories to life by describing how their character feels and acts. Each student than created a fictional character who uses ” safety with body and heart” on an adventure!
