Every Monday in our Sharing Circle, we tell our classmates about something that we did on the weekend. Then we draw a picture and write a "story" to tell about our Weekend News! Some of the skills we are working towards as beginning writers include: We want to draw a recognizable picture, make our picture match our words, use a variety of colours, make sure the people we draw look like people, and use some letters to tell the story. Our goals will grow and develop as the year progresses.
This is what one little student told us about today .... the kindergarten writing says
"I was playing at the baby shower." Notice how some letters already match the sounds being heard.
