Writing First grade is a fabulous year to see your child grow in so many areas. One area they will truly amaze you is writing! When writing we will be working on writing independently using “kid” writing. The children are encouraged to write down the sounds they hear in the words. When writing a word, I will tell them to put the word in their mouth, chew it like bubble gum, and stretch it out! The children will practice and self asses when writing by using their "writer's eye". This means that all sentences have a capital letter, an ending mark, finger spaces, and lower case letters throughout their sentence. We will work on many different types of writing in first grade including: opinion writing, narrative writing, informational writing, and the children will be able to write their own books! Stay tuned for some beginning of the year writing pieces!
