50 Activities for 1st Grade

Hands-on ideas to engage digital learners in meeting standards and learning goals.

graphic image that states 50 ideas for first grade

Fifty ideas for using a digital approach to help first-grade students meet standards and learning goals.

1. Make a map of your neighborhood

Have students create a map of important places in their neighborhood. Have students start with a plain page or use digital grid paper. Then, ask students to draw locations or capture photos with their devices.

2. Explore antonyms

Explore antonyms with your students. Read Dr. Seuss's The Foot Book and create a list of antonyms. You can start them off with things like hot/cold or high/low.

Students can use a creativity and productivity tool, like Wixie , to create illustrations of an antonym pair. Students can use the microphone tool to record their explanations.

image of break and fix with illustrations and definitions

3. Go on a shape hunt

Read a book like The Shape of Me and Other Stuff by Dr. Seuss. Then have students walk around school or their home and find shapes, like rectangles, triangles, or even cylinders and spheres.

Then, have students use their devices to capture the shapes they find and label or add narration to identify them.

Seeing Shapes lesson plan with literature connections, samples, and more

4. Create a collage

Have students use a digital tool to represent themselves with a collage of images. Digital tools like Wixie make it easy to add images and move them around.

student collage with an image of a child reading, dog getting a bath, a soccer ball and more

Students can use this same process to represent events in story things they see during a particular season.

Explore a Me: A Visual Essay lesson plan

5. Design a school backpack

Go beyond simply coloring on the computer to asking students to design something. Since what a first grader knows is school, ask them to design a school backpack that shows off their unique personalities.

Encourage students to use their device's microphone or video camera to record an explanation of their design.

6. Create a digital greeting

Have your students create or add original artwork to a digital creativity tool and then record their voices to create a multimedia message. Copy the URL or export the file and send via email or text.

7. Scratch for self-expression

Remember scratch art? Wixie has a collection of digital scratch art pages with a variety of backgrounds students can "scratch" using an eraser tool.

scratch art image with a spring theme

8. Make a Mondrian

Dutch painter Piet Mondrian is best known for his work that used primary colors and shapes. Visit the Tate Museum's page about Mondrian with your child to learn about this artist and his work.

Have students use a paint bucket tool to fill a Mondrian Coloring page with color.

If your students are ready to create in Mondrian's style, ask them to draw an animal and color it like a Mondrian.

9. Explore emotions with the color monster

Expressing and understanding emotions is hard for a first grader. Read The Color Monster by Anna Llenas to your learners and discuss the different emotions of the monster.

Have students choose one emotion, like happy, calm, or angry, and use a digital tool to illustrate what causes that emotion for them. Then, have them record an appropriate action they can take when they feel this way.

10. Take a 5-senses walk

Go outside and walk around your school. What do you see, hear, smell, touch, or taste? Have students take devices outside to record observations using the 5 senses with pictures and a microphone. Then, when you come back inside, add text and more details.

sample observations from a 5 senses walk

11. Celebrate a community helper

Community helpers are essential to the health and success of our world. Have students celebrate how a community helper is essential to a community by combining words, pictures, and even narration in a digital sentence strip.

12. Tell a cycle story

Have students brainstorm different cyclical events in nature and then have them tell their own cycle story.

Explore a Cycle Story lesson plan

13. Survey peers

Survey your friends, family members, and neighbors about a favorite book, sport, food, game, or at-home activity. Project a question or use a tally sheet on your white board to collect student responses.

sample class tally survey about their favorite book

14. Become the masked reader

Take a clue from the Masked Singer television show to make reading fluency practice less stressful and way more fun.

This is especially helpful for ELLs and struggling readers since they can practice, record, delete, and try again to produce their best work. Their work can also remain completely private if the reader is not unmasked.

15. Fashion a family flag

First-grade students learn how the symbols for a country represent its history and values. Ask them to apply what they have learned about symbols to fashion a flag to represent their family.

Explore a Fashion a Family Flag lesson plan

16. Review and rate a book

Have learners write a review of a recent book they have read. Share with friends and other students to give them ideas for new titles they can read!

Explore more book review ideas, including a book review cube, on Creative Educator .

Explore a 5-Star Book Reviews lesson plan

17. Design a hibernation hotel

As students begin considering what living and nonliving objects need, have them design a hotel for a hibernating animal that contains everything it needs to stay safe, warm, and fed over the winter.

image of squirrel in bed of leaves with nuts

Explore a Hibernation Hotel lesson plan

18. Share a symbol story

Read Norman Pearl's The Great Seal of the United States to have students hear from Ben Franklin about the process used to create the Great Seal. Then, ask them to create a story about another US symbol.

Explore a Symbol Story lesson plan

19. Create a trait map

Have students recall, retell, and share text, images, and voice narration about a character's physical traits, feelings, and actions on a trait cluster .

20. Tell a tangram tale

After students have tried to solve tangram puzzles, read Ann Tompert's Grandfather Tang's Story where the main character rearranges tangram shapes to represent the characters and events as he tells a story.

Ask students to use tangram shapes to create their own tangram shape and tell a story about it. Combine into a class book!

21. Publish student writing

Motivate emerging writers by publishing their stories. Use a tool like Wixie to have students write or record a story and create their own illustrations.

Share a URL or export their work to PDF to easily share to family phones and tablets.

22. Graph it

Graphs help communicate numbers and value visually. They are also a great way to practice one-to-one correspondence and counting.

Post a fun question to your classroom white board and have students drag a square or use a paint bucket tool to add their answer. Then, discuss the results as a class.

23. Observe with a new perspective

So much of what we see about our world depends on our perspective. While young students are still working to show what they observe through their sense of sight, have them practice taking someone else's perspective by sharing a view of the world from the eyes of an insect.

image of a yard from a ladybug's perspective

You can also ask them to complete an empathy map and then write a story about a day in the life of an insect or a letter to one of their insect friends.

24. Create a classroom tour

It can be a little scary to come to a new class with new rules. Once your students have learned and settled into your classroom routine, ask them to apply their knowledge of locations and rules to design a classroom tour.

image of a yard from a ladybug's perspective

Using a digital tool makes it easy to share the finished tour with new students, as well as students joining the class the following year.

Explore a Classroom Tour lesson plan

25. Write a 5 senses poem

In addition to reinforcing scientific observation, engaging the five senses is a great way to help young learners add descriptions to their writing and practice vocabulary.

If your learners would benefit from a little direction, provide a specific topic for their poem.

Explore a 5 Senses Poetry lesson plan

26. Explore the Shape of Things

Dayle Ann Dodds and Julie Lacome showcase shapes in a fun rhythmic story in their book The Shape of Things .

Use this story to inspire students to write their own shape of things book that shows how a shape becomes a common object when specific things are added to it.

Explore a Shape of Things lesson plan

27. Write about your favorite relative

Practice opinion writing through a favorite relative project. Give structure to your emerging writers by using an O-R-E-O Opinion template which asks them to state their opinion, share 2-3 reasons why, and finish with a concluding statement.

Share students' work with their favorite relative.

Explore a Favorite Relative lesson plan

28. Adapt a pattern story

To support your budding authors, ask them to give a twist to a story they know by adding or replacing nouns and verbs.

Explore a list of books perfect for student adaptation

29. Record your positive actions

What actions do your students take to improve their community? Have students draw a picture, write a sentence and record their efforts!

30. What if you could be going places?

Call or video chat with someone who lives far away or read about a new place to learn about the weather and culture in that location. Use a digital tool, like Wixie , to show the weather, what they would pack to wear, and what they would do in that location.

image of student's packed suitcase for Colorado and an illustration of them skiing

31. Record a favorite memory

Have students reflect and create a favorite memory from the school year.

Tools like Wixie make it easy to add images, text, voice recording and video to capture experiences, feelings, and achievements.

32. Practice telling time by the hour and half-hour

Students in first grade are just learning to "tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks." Use a creativity tool like Wixie to draw a picture that shows an activity that occurs at a specific time each day.

image of a school bus and digital time of 3pm

33. Persuade for a pet

Humane societies and pet rescues reported record numbers of adoptions during COVID-19. Encourage your students to write a letter or create a presentation to persuade their family to get a new pet, supporting their opinion with reasons and examples. Help students make a stronger argument with an O-R-E-O organizer.

Explore a Persuade for a Pet lesson plan

34. Raise awareness about an animal or historic figure

Ask students to inform others about a historical figure or an animal. The limited space on a trading card helps emerging writers summarize information and organize their thoughts.

35. Create a digital word wall

Digital tools make adding thoughts to a personal word wall easy. Ask each student to add words they do not know from the books they are reading. Have students look up the meaning in a dictionary or ask a parent or teacher to help them define and add a picture and even voice recording.

36. Write word problems

Have students use a paint or image program, like Wixie , to draw models that help the viewer (and themselves) visualize quantities and relationships in word problems.

37. Inform others

Even the youngest learners can inform others about the topics they are learning. Instead of struggling with writing or typing, have students use a digital tool to add an image and record their voice to share information. Perfect for ELLs.

38. Plan a class party

Planning the details for a party, including needed space (measurement) and a budget (calculations), requires students to practice and apply math and argument skills to a real-life scenario.

Explore a Plan an Event lesson plan

39. Build foundations for scientific thinking

Encourage your student's budding inquiry by using a modified approach to the scientific method .

Have students begin with observation and hypotheses and then progress to thinking about how they can test their ideas and then analyze the results.

40. Create an animal alliteration

Create an amazing animal alliteration - a short sentence in the noun—verb—noun format, such as "Birds build bubbles." Use a creativity tool, like Wixie , to illustrate and record voice narration.

Explore an Animal Alliteration lesson plan

41. Go on a letter hunt

To practice letter sounds, work together to create a class ABC book with pages that contain common words and pictures that begin with each letter sound.

Assign individual letters to students and combine into a class project.

42. Celebrate culture

Creating a safe and respected community culture in your classroom is essential. Have students complete and share a culture poster about themselves, including where they are from, family traditions, and more.

culture poster template image

43. Use emojis to write a story

Emojis started as a time-saving way to communicate emotions without having to type each letter, but have quickly become part of popular culture. Use your student's interest in emojis to encourage creative writing. If needed, provide them with a writing prompt.

image of student writing with words replaced, or represented, by emojis

44. Design a superhero

Tap into students' passion for comics and superheroes by asking them to share some favorites. Then, ask them what qualities or "powers" make a great superhero.

Use an ID card approach to help them define their hero's identity.

image of a superhero id card

Discuss as a class, and then ask each student to design their own superhero and explain how their traits make them a hero.

Explore a Design a Superhero lesson plan

45. Design a how-to book or presentation

What can your students teach others? Procedural writing is an excellent way for students to become experts in a topic and feel confident about their ability to share the information with others.

Explore a Procedural Writing lesson plan

46. Play with virtual math manipulatives

Math manipulatives provide a tangible way to help students see and grasp the nature of numbers and procedures. Use the virtual math manipulatives in tools like Wixie to turn practice into play for deeper mathematical understanding.

image of a few virtual math manipulative options in Wixie

47. Write student names in hieroglyphics

Many first graders can associate the ancient Egyptians with pyramids, mummies, and even hieroglyphics. Hieroglyphs were pictures used as a form of writing, representing words, ideas, and even sounds. Have students add hieroglyps for each letter of their name to an image of a cartouche .

image of a student name written with hieroglyphs

48. Create glyphs to share data

Like hieroglyphics, glyphs use pictures to represent information. Glyphs are a great way to get young learners to follow directions and play with how data can be displayed.

Create a glyph activity like this butterfly to have students share information about how they spent their week by adding symbols to a butterfly's wings. Be sure they use the record button to explain their work.

image butterfly glyph activity

49. Play with patterns

Learning how to identify and create patterns helps build foundations for future math, even algebra! Digital art tools make it easy to paint patterns or add images to make ABA, ABBA and other repeating patterns.

50. Watch the weather and showcase the seasons

The changing weather seasons are scientific phenomenon that students can easily see. Ask students to record their observations using pictures and new terminology to create strong foundations for the scientific method.

Once they have experience with digital projects, let students choose the product or way they will demonstrate understanding… simply make them argue their case before they begin. No matter what you or they choose, transfer as much responsibility as possible to students to motivate and empower them to control their own learning.

14 Effective & Fun First Grade ELA Worksheets & Literacy Centers

Planning and implementing literacy activities for each day of the month takes a lot of work. Teachers always look for ways to take First Grade ELA planning off their plates. Monthly literacy centers, worksheets, and mini-readers will save the day! These printable resources will free up your time so you can focus on the kids.

First Grade ELA -header

Best Practices for Teaching First Grade ELA Standards

First grade ELA standards include covering phonics, phonemic awareness, grammar, sentence writing, reading fluency, and comprehension. These are just some of the standards touched on!

There’s a lot to cover, and it can get overwhelming. Luckily for you, these monthly literacy activities will help!

Table of contents

First-grade standards kids need to know, when to teach first grade ela standards, how to teach first grade ela skills, activities to teach 1st grade ela standards, free literacy worksheets to try, more first grade ela ideas & activities.

Picture this: Each reporting period, you have a lengthy list of standards to cover before report cards go home. You’re stressing over how you will teach everything to the kids in time.

Yup! Been there, done that!

The monthly literacy centers and worksheets I will introduce in this post have everything you need to cover all of the standards. Everything is already mapped out for you, so you just print and use it in your centers, as morning work , in small groups, or as you see fit.

Picture this: You have already created your lesson plans and taught the prescribed ELA material, but some students aren’t grasping the concepts. You need something to help reinforce each skill, but they’re tired of the same materials.

Try something new!

These monthly literacy activities have differentiated worksheets and printables to make things exciting and student-centered. The consistency of the resources will help students complete their work independently, but the scaffolded topics will allow them to be challenged each month as they practice and build new skills in fun ways.

First Grade ELA -bundle

Around the world, first grade literacy standards are very similar. While they might differ slightly, the basic premise is pretty much the same.

Here is a brief list of first grade literacy standards you must most likely cover in the classroom!

General ELA Skills

  • Ask and answer questions about key details in a text.
  • Retell stories, including key details, and demonstrate understanding of their central message or lesson.
  • Describe characters, settings, and major story events using key details.
  • Use illustrations and details in a story to describe its characters, setting, or events.
  • Compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in stories.

Reading: Foundational Skills

  • Recognize the distinguishing features of a sentence (e.g., first word, capitalization, ending punctuation).
  • Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds (phonemes).
  • Distinguish long from short vowel sounds in spoken single-syllable words.
  • Orally produce single-syllable words by blending sounds (phonemes), including consonant blends.
  • Isolate and pronounce initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in spoken single-syllable words.
  • Segment spoken single-syllable words into their complete sequence of individual sounds (phonemes).
  • Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
  • Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words.
  • Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension.
  • Write opinion pieces that introduce the topic or name the book they are writing about, state an opinion, supply a reason for the opinion, and provide some sense of closure.
  • Write informative/explanatory texts in which they name a topic, supply some facts about the topic, and provide some sense of closure.
  • Write narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure.
  • Use conventional spelling for words with common spelling patterns and for frequently occurring irregular words.
  • Spell untaught words phonetically, drawing on phonemic awareness and spelling conventions.
  • Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grade 1 reading and content, choosing flexibly from various strategies.
  • Use sentence-level context as a clue to the meaning of a word or phrase.
  • Define words by category and by one or more key attributes (e.g., a duck is a bird that swims; a tiger is a large cat with stripes).
  • Identify real-life connections between words and their use (e.g., note places at home that are cozy).
  • Distinguish shades of meaning among verbs differing in manner (e.g., look, peek, glance, stare, glare, scowl) and adjectives differing in intensity (e.g., large, gigantic) by defining or choosing them or acting out the meanings.

Please keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list. There are plenty more standards that these cross over with and more that build from these foundational skills.

First Grade ELA kids actually enjoy

Literacy standards should be taught during all literacy blocks. Whether you are teaching a whole group lesson or working on a specific skill with a small group of children, you should focus on standards covered in the grade.

One of the easiest (and most fun) ways to teach standards is to incorporate them into activities. These activities can be completed independently, as a small group, and even in a whole group setting.

Begin by teaching a skill in a whole group setting over the course of a week or more. Then, reinforce the skill by working one-on-one with students at your teacher’s table or in small groups. Use mini readers, worksheets, short passages, and fun games to encourage them as they dive into the skill.

Next, add the skill into activities they can complete independently or with a partner. These can be literacy center worksheets, games, morning work , exit tickets, or early finisher activities . The key to teaching ELA skills is offering them to students in various ways and differentiating them based on necessity and skill level.

Do you want activities that are meaningful, standards-based, and planned for you each month? With this monthly bundle of First Grade Literacy Activities , you can simply print and use it in the classroom. No extra planning is needed!

This is what you will find in each month.

6 Types of 1st Grade Literacy Centers

Each of the literacy centers offered has 3 versions, so you can use them plenty throughout the month. Each center comes with a recording sheet to keep students accountable and on track.

Sorting Activity – Students sort images and words into appropriate categories depending on the skill for that month. Ideal to complete as a class, in small groups, or with a partner.

First Grade ELA -syllables

Find the Pair – Using cards with pictures, students will sort into pairs or another way depending on the language skill being studied that month. After all pairs are made, they record their answers.

First Grade ELA -find the pair

Puzzles – Students will piece together three-piece puzzles depending on the skill being studied that month. Once all puzzles are completed, they can fill in the recording form with the words.

First Grade ELA -puzzles

Clip Cards – Using clips, students find all of the images that match the sound type being studied in the center of the card. Once they are done clipping the cards, they can use one of the given forms to record their answers.

First Grade ELA -middle sounds

Build the Sight Words – Students will love this hands-on building center where they trace, write, and build sight words. Building materials can include tiles, magnets, playdough, or any other classroom materials!

Writing Prompts for First Graders: Topics & Tips for Success

  • August 24, 2023

If you’re looking for writing prompts for first graders AND you want to learn how to help kids be successful with their writing, you’re in the right place! In this post, I’m going to share 5 steps to follow when having your 1st graders respond to writing prompts. I’ll also include examples of narrative, informational, and opinion writing prompts that you can use. Plus, I’ll share how you can use differentiation to make sure that all your young writers are successful!

Five Steps for Success When Using Writing Prompts

Step #1: choose a writing prompt that’s engaging and inspires more than a one-word or one-sentence response..

Writing can feel difficult for kids in this age group. Their writing abilities may still be limited, and some kids may feel reluctant to write. To help motivate them, choose prompts that will capture their attention!

first graders assignments

You’ll also want to make sure that students have enough to say when they respond to the prompt. Questions that require only a one-word or one-sentence answer will result in students finishing quickly. 

You’ll also want to make sure that students actually have something to say about the writing topic – perhaps from something they’ve experienced at school or in their daily lives, or from something related to a science/social studies topic you’ve taught them about. If you choose something outside of these areas, students won’t be successful. For example, if you ask students to write about their favorite vacation, it’s possible that they’ve never been on vacation and won’t have anything to say. Or if you ask students to write about their favorite sport but they don’t know much about sports (and you haven’t taught about them in class), they won’t be successful with this prompt, either.

Below are a few prompt ideas from m y differentiated writing prompts for first graders that are both engaging and will elicit a good response from most kids. They are organized by type of writing:

Narrative writing prompts:

  • Write about a time when you felt angry.
  • Write about a first grader who gets lost in the mall/a store. Write a story about what the first grader does.
  • Imagine that you walk into your classroom one morning and find a skunk sitting at your desk. Write a story about what happens.

Informational writing prompts:

  • Explain how to make toast.
  • Explain how day and night are the same and different.
  • Give some tips for staying healthy.
  • Choose an animal that lives in the ocean. Write interesting facts about that animal.

Opinion writing prompts:

  • What is your favorite thing to do after school? Why?
  • What is the best part about being a kid? Why?
  • What is your favorite part of the school day? Why?
  • Should kids be allowed to choose their own bedtimes? Why or why not?

first graders assignments

Step #2: Model how to make a plan for your writing.

When you want students to respond to a writing prompt , the first thing you’ll need to do is  model. ​ And I mean fully model – not just get them started or talk about what you want them to do! You’ll need to show them and talk them through each step in the process. (Of course, as time goes on and students become more comfortable with the writing process, you’ll be able to model less. But when they’re getting started or having difficulty, there’s no such thing as “too much” modeling!)

Using a graphic organizer is a great way to guide students in making a plan for their writing. Even if their written response is not going to be very lengthy, drawing or writing in an organizer will help them create a more complete, coherent piece of writing.

On chart paper, on the board, or under a document camera, take a blank copy of the same graphic organizer that you want students to use. Think aloud as you fill out the graphic organizer. 

Let’s say that you want to model how to respond to the prompt, “Write about a time when you tried something new.” You might say to your students (while modeling how to complete your graphic organizer):

“First graders, I want to write about a time when I tried something new – something I’ve never done before. Hmmm…well, an idea that popped into my mind was the time I first went kayaking. That happened years ago, but at the time, it was new to me. I’d never done it before.”

“Let me think about what I did first, next, and last. I’ll close my eyes for a second and picture what happened. Well, first, my husband and I listened to our kayak tour leader who was going to lead us in the water. She explained kayak safety rules and how to paddle. In my graphic organizer, I’m going to write ‘Listened to kayak tour leader explain safety rules and how to paddle.’ This is not a complete sentence but that’s okay – it’s just an idea, and I’ll add more later when I create my draft.”

(And so on.)

For narrative writing, you might give students a “timeline” graphic organizer so they can map out real events or imagined events for their story:

first graders assignments

Or, a simple “beginning-middle-end” graphic organizer works, too!

first graders assignments

For informational writing, you might try a web (each bubble includes a nonfiction fact):

first graders assignments

You might also try an organizer like this that encourages students to plan an introduction, facts and details, and a conclusion:

first graders assignments

For opinion writing, you might try a “flow chart style” graphic organizer that starts with an opinion, gives reasons, and wraps up with a conclusion:

first graders assignments

After you’ve modeled how to create a plan for writing, allow students to create their own plans. Another tip to help your kids be successful – allow your first graders to talk through their writing idea with a partner before they sit down to fill out their graphic organizers. This conversation can give them a starting point so it’s easier for them to begin working. It can also be motivating for reluctant writers!

Step #3: Model how to take your plan and turn it into a first draft.

Once you’ve modeled how to create a plan and students have made their own plans, it’s time to actually write! Place your graphic organizer next to your blank writing paper (drafting paper) and start modeling how to draft. Explain how you are adding more details and writing in complete sentences. 

You can also focus on a particular skill that you want students to master, like one of these writing skills:

  • Segment words and use your phonics knowledge to spell them
  • Begin each sentence with a capital letter
  • End each sentence with a punctuation mark
  • Write in complete sentences
  • Use spaces between words
  • Write with lots of details
  • Use transition words
  • Tell events in chronological order
  • Avoid run-on sentences

Once you’ve modeled how to turn your graphic organizer into a draft, it’s time for students to write! At this point, some of your young learners will be ready to write, write, write! However, some young students may still need some more support. They might be learning English as a second language, have a learning disability, struggle with language skills, have writer’s block, or simply need extra help to be successful.

This is where differentiated writing supports can really come in handy. Three great tools are sentence starters, word banks, and self-assessment checklists.

Sentence starters  can help show students how to:

  • Structure and organize their writing

first graders assignments

Word banks  can help students:

  • Use more specific vocabulary
  • Get a boost when spelling is a struggle for them
  • Get ideas for their writing (the word bank in the photo below lists adjectives a student might use to describe their desired school mascot)

first graders assignments

Self-assessment checklists  can help students:

  • Learn to revise and edit their writing (more on that in Step #4!)
  • Slow down and check their work rather than immediately declaring that they are finished

first graders assignments

You can even give students a combination of these tools on their writing paper, like these examples:

first graders assignments

In my sets of differentiated writing prompts for first grade , you get options for ALL of these supports (and combinations of them) for every single prompt! This means that you can easily choose the built-in supports you want to use. You can also differentiate by giving different students different writing paper!

Of course, as the school year goes on, you’ll want to remove these supports. The goal is for students to learn to write complete responses on their own. But with first graders, this can take time!

Step #4: Model how to revise and edit your writing.

After students are finished drafting, they might think that they are all done! But we know that an important part of the writing process is revising and editing. You’ll want to show your students how you:

  • Correct spelling, punctuation, and capitalization mistakes
  • Fix grammar errors like incomplete or run-on sentences
  • Look for places that could be confusing to the reader, and add more detail
  • Add an introduction and/or conclusion, if they are missing
  • Fix up messy handwriting

This is a lot for kids to think about. The self-assessment checklists you’ve seen in previous photos can definitely help. It can also help to have kids focus on just ONE area each time they review their work (for example, do a read-through and only look for punctuation errors; do another read-through and only look for capitalization mistakes).

Revising and editing can be tricky for ALL writers – and especially for young children. They will likely need your help to fix certain mistakes. However, one of the best ways to get them to revise and edit without your help is to set up peer editing!

In peer editing, kids read each other their writing and make suggestions for improvement. Of course, they will need to see you model this so they understand how it’s done.

Step #5: Provide an opportunity for students to share their writing.

Having an audience to whom they can share their writing can be very motivating for first graders – and all students! Sharing could be as simple as sitting with a partner and reading them their finished work.

Or, you might have your students re-copy their work onto fancier final draft paper. They can read their work to their peers and you might display it on a bulletin board. You could even invite another class of students into your class, have students pair up, and allow them to share their writing.

What are 1st Grade STEM Projects?

A STEM project is an integrated activity that includes elements of science, technology, engineering, and math (usually 2 or more).

If your child is doing a traditional science fair project, then it is most likely a STEM project. Science fair projects usually require science, technology, and math, and many of them also include engineering!

In general, a project that encourages kids to learn more about the world using a hands-on approach is a STEM project. If an element of art or design is included, it’s a STEAM art activity!

You don’t have to overthink STEM at a first grade level. Just exploring science and the world is enough to experience STEM in first grade!

How to Setup a First Grade STEM Activity

easy 1st grade stem projects

Setting up a first grade STEM activity is easy.

You’ll want to have a working knowledge of the science behind the activity before introducing it to your child.

If you’re a teacher, it’s easy enough to find a hands-on STEM activity to go along with state science standards or national science standards.

Find a spot in your home or classroom that can get a bit messy (we like a bit of mess in our hands-on science activtities!). Set everything up, then introduce the concept to the kids.

After the introduction of concept, let the kids do their own experimenting to the best of their abilities. Sometimes this means that the focus of the experiment will change, which is OK and all part of the learning process.

Make sure to have a period of reflection about the science activity once completed. This can be something written down or just an informal discussion.

If you’re following along with Next Generation Science Standards, check out our list of first grade NGSS lesson plans.

If you’re setting up first grade STEM projects at home, read our series on STEM at home!

Teacher Secretly Sold His Students’ Art on Mugs and Shirts, Lawsuit Says

Parents of a dozen students at a school near Montreal accused an art teacher in a lawsuit of reproducing portraits from a class assignment and putting them on items that he offered for sale online.

A child’s portrait of a classmate in a semiabstract style.

By Sopan Deb

In January, students at a junior high school outside Montreal received an assignment to draw a classmate or a self-portrait in the style of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

“The challenge is to make an original artwork in Basquiat’s style; not to copy one of his images,” the teacher, Mario Perron, wrote to his students on the junior campus at Westwood High School in St.-Lazare, Quebec. “I am very familiar with Basquiat’s work and will return copied work, because it is considered plagiarism.”

The assignment was titled “Creepy Portrait.”

Basquiat was a worthy subject: He was the influential Brooklyn-born artist of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent who was known for a brief career in which he innovated with graffiti and other types of improvisational pieces. He died at 27 in 1988 .

But parents of some students who completed the assignment were shocked to find that Mr. Perron had copied the portraits and was offering mugs, cushions, bags, apparel and other items for sale online bearing reproductions of the artwork, according to a class-action lawsuit filed last week in Quebec Superior Court.

Joel DeBellefeuille, who learned what was happening from his 13-year-old son, Jax, accused Mr. Perron in an interview of perpetrating a “premeditated” scheme. A portrait of Jax by one of his classmates was among the student artwork being offered for sale, he said.

“ I freaked out,” Mr. DeBellefeuille said. “I was full of emotions. Still now, it’s really unbelievable.”

Mr. Perron, who did not respond to a request for comment, is not listed as a current employee on the school’s website . Darren Becker, a spokesman for the Lester B. Pearson School Board, which is a named defendant in the suit, said the school board “does not comment on internal investigations.”

It was not immediately clear if Mr. Perron had sold any of the items he listed, or how much money, if any, he had made.

Mr. DeBellefeuille first discovered that the art had been repurposed on Feb. 8, when his son, who had done a Google search, showed him that Mr. Perron had created a profile on Fine Art America , an online art marketplace. The profile had thousands of items for sale displaying the work originally submitted by the students, priced between $9.50 and $113 in U.S. currency, all apparently unauthorized.

Each item was labeled with the student’s first name followed by “Creepy Portrait.” The drawings themselves mimic the frenetic style of Basquiat — multicolored portraits that nod to the unconventional and imaginative, including many oddly shaped heads and contorted bodies. Mr. Perron was listed as the artist for all of the works, according to screenshots provided by Mr. DeBellefeuille.

In total, according to a demand letter sent to the school district on Feb. 13, there were 2,976 items for sale using works from the 96 students who were given the assignment. The student artwork was reproduced in 31 categories, including throw pillows, tank tops, tote bags and beach towels, according to the letter.

The works appear to have been removed from the Fine Art America website.

“It is evident that the trust of the public, the students, the parents, and specifically our clients, in the school board and its representatives, has been severely shaken,” the letter said.

Mr. DeBellefeuille’s brother Martin, a lawyer, initially sent the letter on behalf of Mr. DeBellefeuille and Edith Liard, the parent of another child in the art class. The parents of 10 other children have since attached themselves to the suit, Mr. DeBellefeuille said, including two who added their names after it was filed on Friday.

The plaintiffs are seeking 2.16 million Canadian dollars, or about $1.59 million, a figure that includes 5,000 Canadian dollars for each work reproduced in the 31 categories as well as punitive damages and legal fees. They are also demanding that Mr. Perron withdraw the works from all platforms, for him to be suspended and for a written apology.

Under the Canadian Copyright Act, a copyright owner may be entitled to between 500 and 20,000 Canadian dollars for each work that is unlawfully used. Under Canadian law, one does not need to file for a copyright to be considered a copyright owner .

The suit cites the Civil Code of Quebec as the reason the school board is named as a defendant. It says that “the principal is bound to make reparation for injury caused by the fault of his subordinates in the performance of their duties.”

Mr. DeBellefeuille said he expected that the school district would settle rather than go to court.

“For me, it takes a special kind of person to go that deep to do what he did to minor children,” Mr. DeBellefeuille said of Mr. Perron. “This is what enrages me.”

First they tried protests of anti-gay bills. Then students put on a play at Louisiana’s Capitol

The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Ava Kreutziger was in high school English class last year when she heard about the passage of legislation that could affect LGBTQ+ students like her. She excused herself from class to go cry in the bathroom, and found two of her classmates already there in tears.

Those bills were vetoed, but similar proposals — now with a better shot of passing under a new Republican governor — would regulate students’ pronouns, the bathrooms they can use and discussions of gender and sexuality in the classroom, which opponents call “Don’t Say Gay” bills.

In the past, students at Kreutziger’s high school in New Orleans have held walkouts to protest anti-inclusion proposals. This year, a group of students tried something different: a play, based on their own experiences, performed on the steps of the state Capitol. Compared with a raucous demonstration, the students hoped a play could spark more empathy.

They have seen up close the mental health struggles of queer students, who were four times more likely to attempt suicide during the pandemic compared with straight students. For those involved in the play, the proposals before the legislature are a matter of life and death.

“I just hope they can see something in us that’s worth saving,” said Kreutziger, a 17-year-old senior at Benjamin Franklin High School.

For students who can feel like pawns in political and cultural fights playing out around the country, the play also offered an opportunity to regain a sense of power.

“It’s the deepest expression of who they are. And that part of it, knowing that you can create something beautiful, that can make change,” said Ariella Assouline, a program manager at the It Gets Better Project, an organization that supports LBGTQ+ youth.

Benjamin Franklin High, a selective charter school, used part of a grant from It Gets Better to fund the production and hired Broadway director Jimmy Maize to help students develop a script. Maize is a member of the Tectonic Theater Project, best known for “The Laramie Project,” a play about the 1998 murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard.

The students’ play, dubbed “The Capitol Project,” came together with just a few rehearsals on Saturdays and in the school’s elective playwriting course. They performed it on Wednesday, four days ahead of Sunday’s international Transgender Day of Visibility.

Students were jittery with nerves as they ascended the steps of the Capitol building, the tallest in the U.S. Facing the entrance, the teenagers shared their stories. Some were about the joy they felt when they learned about LGBTQ+ history in school, or about their parents’ acceptance. One student laughed about a plan concocted at the age of 12 to come out to family by kissing their best friend at midnight on New Years’ Eve.

Others spoke to feelings of despair and shame. In one scene, two students brought out a thick rope tied into a noose at one end. Jude Armstrong, 17, walked across it like a tightrope, legs wobbling.

“What do you you say to a little kid who prays to the same God you do?” Jude, who is transgender, asked in another scene. “When they ask God how much longer until they’re allowed to be themselves?”

Bills targeting the rights of gay and trans people have topped conservative agendas in statehouses around the country, with state legislatures over the last two years considering hundreds of proposals affecting teachers and LGBTQ+ students .

Earlier versions of the Louisiana proposals were vetoed last year by the state’s Democratic governor. But with a new Republican governor and supermajority control of the legislature, there is a clear path to passage for the bills introduced this session.

Louisiana state Rep. Raymond Crews, a Republican who wrote a bill that would ban schools’ use of a child’s preferred pronouns without parental permission, said the debate over pronouns is a distraction from learning that he hopes the bill will “relegate to the background.” He said it is misguided to adopt a students’ preferred pronouns if they don’t align with their gender at birth.

“We can’t ultimately be responsible for people’s feelings,” he said.

As the students performed, legislators inside the Capitol were on the House floor debating a bill about car insurance. It appeared that only one lawmaker — state Sen. Royce Duplessis, a Democrat — stopped to watch the play for an extended time.

Royce said he is worried the bill will drive talented young people to leave the state.

“How do we expect kids to stay in a state like this when laws are being passed that basically say to them, we don’t care about you?” he said.

In the production’s final scene, a mother and her child came forward for a dialogue. Eve Peyton, a marketing and communications coordinator at the school, spoke of how she struggled when her child chose a new name. It felt like they were rejecting a precious family gift. Eventually, Peyton realized “gifts can be outgrown.”

“I’m here to fight with them, every step of the way,” Peyton said.

She passed the mic to another adult, who said the same thing. The mic got passed again, and again. For a total of 49 times, while the performers looked on with tears streaming down their faces, adults and kids in the audience said the same thing: “I’m here to fight with them, every step of the way.”

NCAA Women's Tournament bracket 2024: Printable bracket, games, matchups for Elite Eight of March Madness

The tournament is winding down, but the action is heating up as we reach the elite eight.

And then there were eight. The 2024 NCAA Women's Tournament is near its conclusion with the Elite Eight now officially set for tip off. All four No. 1 seeds are still alive and vying to reach the Final Four. That includes top overall seed South Carolina, who maintains its undefeated record, looking to become the 10th team to complete an undefeated season as national champions. Plus, Iowa, Texas and USC are all still in the mix.

The other four teams are just as deserving to this point, but interestingly no No. 2 seeds made it to this point. In fact, each No. 1 seed will take on the No. 3 seed in their region. Oregon State, NC State, LSU and UConn all made it through their first three games to reach this point and have a chance to score the upset and make the Final Four.

Sunday will see two teams punch their ticket to the Final Four in Cleveland. Things get underway with South Carolina taking on Oregon State in Albany, New York. Then, attention turns out west with Texas battling NC State from Portland, Oregon. 

Below you will find a viewable/printable 2024 NCAA Women's Tournament bracket. Thanks for stopping by, but don't forget to continue to checking in throughout the next three weeks. CBS Sports will offer complete coverage of the events with the latest news, results and breakdowns of the biggest matchups.

March Madness® is better with friends, especially when you beat them!  Get your bracket pools ready now  and invite your friends, family and co-workers to play.

As usual, we'll have a variety of methods in which you can view the bracket on the device of your choice. And you absolutely want to make sure you join our Bracket Games where you can compete against the public or create a bracket group to battle your family, friends and/or co-workers.
