Writing We have worked so hard in writing in the first month we have been in school. Students are working on using their "writer's eye" when writing a sentence. Students also learned the difference between a sentence and a phrase. We have learned how to make our own books! Ask your child what their book is about :) The students learned the difference between fact and opinion. They are using this information to write opinion pieces. When writing opinion pieces, students must state their opinion and give evidence to back up their opinion. For example, the students had to decide which special they liked best, p.e. or art. We brainstormed many ideas of what they do in the specials. Children needed to state their opinion, and give at least one reason why they liked the special. We also wrote opinion pieces on what our favorite type of apple is (after a taste test of course!), and why we like Fall. In October, we will start a unit of study in narrative writing.
