Our sentence of the week for the last two half weeks was;
Are you playing with a magic snowman?
The children wrote the sentence all by themselves for the first time on Friday 1/19/18. We will start writing each sentence of the week on Fridays independently. This helps me to see if children are able to use the word wall to find words, if they understand spacing, letter formation, as well as trying to put sounds together in unknown words. This helps me to guide future mini lessons for writing workshop and phonics. Keep encouraging your child to try and slowly sound out unknown words. I tell the kiddos they cannot ask me to spell a word for them. I will help them sound it out and guide them to find the letter on their alphabet chart.
Happy learning! Have a great weekend!
* I will send this example home for you to view, but I will usually keep the sentences for data purposes.
*Next week our sentence is;
The boy went all the way to town.
