Students will work on writing daily in our classroom using Writer's Workshop. We strive t0 have good 3 paragraph stories.
We edit for punctuation, spelling, capitalization and
grammatical errors. We will also work on writing detailed sentences to go with a main idea sentence and a closing sentence.
We will practice writing "seed" stories instead of "watermelon" stories as the students learn to focus their ideas on paper.
Continue to have your child read stories aloud to you. By having your child do this and by talking to them about the above things, you are helping reinforce these skills!
We will be practicing writing personal narratives as well as imaginative stories this year.
Ready for Reading!
Reading logs will be sent home in the homework folder. Your child is required to read several nights each month for 15 minutes. You may always read more than the assigned nights.
Sign agendas nightly and look for homework.
Read for the monthly reading log and return homework daily.
