Kent School First Grade Students Write Persuasively

Cheryl Plummer, First Grade teacher at Kent School in Chestertown, MD incorporated many teaching methods and learning opportunities into a request for a new classroom rug. Students wrote persuasive arguments using their weekly vocabulary words. They determined how large the new rug should to accommodate next year’s class by conducting interviews with the Admission Office. They learned how to use a measuring tape and made sure the new rug would fit in their designated space. (It would)! Finally, they presented their request with all the supporting data in book form to the Head of School. Their request was approved on the spot!
