Language Arts:
Have some fun in the coming months! Special family times can be reading times. Let children see you enjoy reading. Books are good, but don't forget:
# newspapers
# comics
# advertisements
# mail
# recipes
# magazines
# menus
# labels
# cereal boxes
# signs

We are using Lucy Calkin's Writing Workshop this year. Remember to praise your little writers rather than spelling for them. Along with the reading, remember the writing. Add some pizazz to your handiwork by using a variety of tools such as markers, paint, shaving cream, sidewalk chalk and pudding. If you can read it, you can write it!
# notes (I love you!, thank you, reminders)
# grocery lists
# chores
# invitations
# letters
# label your toy boxes
# write your name!!

Our writing center is open for business! The kindergarten writers have been busily creating masterpieces. Be on the look-out for class books and individual books to be shared at home.
