This Week At School

Every Friday we talk about what we did at school this week. St. Patrick's Day fun was on most people's minds this week! After we brainstorm our ideas, each person writes a story to take home and share with someone. We keep these stories in our T.W.A.S. books (TWAS =(This Week At School). The kids are at various writing stages. We have talked about matching our picture to our story, using appropriate colours in our drawings, putting finger spaces between our words, and putting something at the end of our sentence. Students are encouraged to use words that they already know (sight words) and to print all the sounds they hear in unfamiliar words. Here's what some of the kids independently wrote about today.
"We had a leprechaun in our classroom."
            "We had leprechauns and we tried to catch him but he was too fast!"
                                     "A leprechaun went to our room left some green footprints!"
        "We ate magic powder and milk. It was fun."
