Conversation Starters

As a way to foster conversations with your child about what we are learning, please ask him/her the following:


Fire Safety: Who do you call in case of a serious fire? Where is your family's meeting place? What do you do if your clothes catch on fire? (stop, drop, roll and cover your face)


Fairy Tales: Ask your child about his favorite fairy tale that he has heard this week during Reading Workshop. I encourage you to read fairy tales with your children.

Word Work

We can name facts about sentences. (How many words are in the sentence, what do sentences start with, what do they end with, etc.)

Writers Workshop

As Writers, we make sure we include who is in the story, where is it taking place and what is happening in the story.

Reading Workshop

As Readers, we can be storytellers by looking at the pictures, remembering what happens on each page, then "reading" the story.
