We are back to Narrative Writing! This unit focuses on the following:
*Saying, drawing, and writing a whole story
*Having a 3 page story that is in order
*Having a story that says who was there, what they did, and how people felt
*Drawing and writing some details about what happened
*Being able to read our own writing
*Writing a letter for the sounds we hear
*Using the word wall
*Having finger spaces between words
*Using lowercase letters unless capitals were needed
*Writing capital letters to start every sentence
You can use your super powers to read even harder books.
Even when sentences get long and there are more words on a page, there is often a pattern. If you can figure out the pattern you can figure out almost every word on the page and help you know what the book is about.
When you get to tricky words in the pattern think, "What is the same and what is changing on each page?" Then you can look at the picture, think about what is happening, and get your mouth ready to say the first sound in the word.
