Writing

We are working on developing our skills as writers here at Maayan.  Each class is focusing on how to formulate good sentences, paragraphs, and papers throughout the school.  Writing is such an important part in our world, and our students are using these skills to express their creative ideas, as well as information they have learned.

In Tipot, students shared ideas about what butterflies eat, things we see in spring, and read books.
