6 Best Writing Lessons Ever

First, Next, Last Story Pattern and Social Studies Connection

Kylene Reed

This was too cute not to share!!! At the end of last week, I visited our first graders to work on story plans focusing on first, next, and last. Their teacher shared with me how she was connecting EW to what they were learning in social studies- timelines. The first, next, last lessons were perfect for teaching students the foundation behind a timeline. After practicing with read aloud books, students then created their own first, next, last about themselves!! These are adorable. Thank you Mrs. Downey for sharing your great ideas with us all. 😘 xoxo
