Ramping Up - We are Writing!

This semester, we will use our growing knowledge of letter sounds to write. We love it when students spell phonetically (not necessarily accurately), because it shows that they are really applying their knowledge. For example, they may stretch the word "paper" as p-a-p-er. Since they hear these 4 sounds, they may spell it "papr" which is completely developmentally appropriate. When practicing writing at home, please ask your child to stretch words like a rubber band to identify each sound that they hear. Start with simple 3-letter consonant-vowel-consonant words.


We will also focus on sentence structure - beginning with a capital letter, ending with a punctuation mark, and spacing between words. You should see your child's high frequency word knowledge emerge here, as well.
