Whale Watching / by Alan Strathman

Recently my Grade 1 boys completed a worksheet on the "wh" sound. Here is Jeremy's:

Notice that one task asks them to draw pictures of some "wh" words. I noticed Jeremy's whale and loved it. It's such a happy whale.  As I looked at some other whales I discovered I loved them all.  So I arranged the papers to capture their whale visions.

They just love drawing, still without any worries about what people will think, or if it will be good enough. Every time they draw anything they bring it up to show me because they want me to see what they have drawn, and, I think by now, because they know I will say how great it is. These are some pretty great whales!
