Second-graders Share Autobiographies

As part of a second-grade tradition, students in Cicely Knecht and Danielle Necessary’s classes created autobiographies. But this year, Necessary and Knecht adapted the project for remote learning. “Usually, we share our autobiographies along with posters displaying pictures throughout the child’s life on Grandpersons’ Day,” Necessary said. “This year, we decided to share our autobiographies by creating videos and posting them on our class blog.” While crafting their autobiographies and recording their work on video, students practiced interviewing, taking notes, organizing information, creating topic sentences, editing and improving writing, and using descriptive words, to name a few. “We started the year working on crafting effective sentences,” Necessary said. “Now, our students are creating multi-paragraph pieces. We’re so proud of their hard work!”
