Task 3 (Writing):
We will make a writing notebook. You can use a spiral notebook, a journal, loose paper stapled together basically anything your families have available on hand. It is so important that we continue writing daily just as we would each morning at school. Kinders, you know the drill...date at the top, write to the prompt, illustrate and color a picture to match what your wrote about. You should write daily, however I will provide 3 journal prompts. I will need 1 scanned or emailed to me weekly. I am specifically looking for the date, multiple sentences about the prompt that are in students handwriting, use of caps and punctuation and an illustration to match. Parents- give feedback and guidance after they have completed their writing, help them to sound out words but don't just tell them. Have them read what they wrote to you. Praise, Praise, Praise them and this will hopefully help combat frustration and tears. Writing is hard, but it is essential :)
Prompt 1- Tell me 3 ways you clean your bedroom.
Prompt 2- What would you pack to go on a camping trip?
Prompt 3- Would you rather take a vacation to the beach or the rainforest? Why?
