Posted on Mar 5, 2018

In Mrs. C. Bonilla’s PreKindergarten class at Mariposa Elementary, the students discussed many different kinds of paper. This included where paper comes from and what different things they can create with it. The students practiced writing, drawing, cutting, and gluing the paper. Madison Barr wrote ” Paper comes from trees.” and drew trees to illustrate her sentence. She practiced copying, starting with a capital letter, and left appropriate spaces between the words.
