Language Arts - Writing
We have come far this Kindergarten year in Writer's Workshop! From beginning writing where our stories may have been told totally through a picture with perhaps a single letter or two to represent the words we wanted to say, we have moved on to personal narrative stories. We have worked to tell more, putting details and our own voice into our writing. As our letter and sound identification has grown, our ability to put more writing in our stories has grown, along with our store of known, high-frequency words to use. We have begun to truly write for readers, using print conventions such as punctuation, spaces between words, and capitalization to make our writing easier for our audience to read. We have learned so much about informational writing - "How-To" and "All-About" writing. We incorporate different features of non-fiction books into our writing. We have done early research and note-taking, and presented this research to the class. Nothing makes us more proud than to sit in the Author's Chair to share our writing - CONGRATULATIONS to ALL our Kindergarten Writers!
