Writing and illustrating is an important element of the first grade curriculum. First graders learn about the parts of a book, the author, the illustrator and what makes a good story. The teacher reads chapter books to them, and they get to create their own books with words and illustrations. At the end of the year, families come one morning for the Authors Tea, and first graders read and show their books. It is a fun time for the families and rewarding for the children to see all they have accomplished over the year.
