Making Meaning lessons are focusing on visualizing using poetry. The children are learning to draw mental images of a story. We are also continuing to work on retelling a story. You can ask your child questions after they read their nightly books. Have the children start at the beginning and tell you what happened in the story making sure that they use the characters names in their retelling.
Being a Writer lessons are focusing on telling stories orally before writing. They are also rereading their writing and adding details. The children are sharing their writing with a partner.
We are looking forward to the holiday sing on December 20. We hope to see you there!
