Cycle 4 focused on Language Arts & Communication. First grade students examined the traits of characters from picture books and learned to distinguish between factual character traits presented directly in the story and character traits that readers infer from the story. They read several books with the character they chose to study. After analyzing their character they made Power Point presentations describing the characters. They also used *Wordle to make a poster to describe the character. The first graders turned their character Power Point presentations into a guessing game. Check out their projects and see if you can guess which character they are describing!
* Wordle is a tool for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide.
