The Best School in the World!
The Grade 1 students are amazing – they started the year barely writing sentences and now they are writing their own opinion pieces!
First, they had to understand what the word “opinion” means. An opinion is something that you think and feel. We discussed how we all have opinions about things, and we shared some of our opinions.
The students came up with a list of favourite things that they could share their opinion about. They created a writing web to add as many reasons as they could to support their opinion.
This past week they learned that there are 3 ways to write a strong introduction to grab the reader’s attention: ask a question, share a strong feeling, or tell an interesting fact. We practised by writing about our school:
- Do you want to attend the best school in the world? The Udine International School is the best school in the world because….
- My school is a fun and an amazing place to learn! The Udine International School is the best school in the world because….
- The Principal Mrs. Green believes that children, when nurtured and inspired, have the potential to do amazing things. The Udine International School is the best school in the world because….
Finally they learned how to add a strong conclusion.
Now that you know the Udine International school is the best school in the world, come and see it for yourself!
