Writing
In writing, we are learning all about books that follow a pattern. Many of the books that we read at the beginning of first grade have repetitive patterns so this ties nicely with trying to write books that have a repetitive pattern. We are reading many books that have a repetitive pattern and using these as mentor text to help us figure out how to write our own. One book that we read that we all loved was called, "When I Was Five". In this book the main character tells all about his life and his interests when he was five and then he tells how things have changed now that he is six. The repetitive phrases are "When I was five" and "Now that I am six". This book appealed to many of us and we tried to write a book in that style. Ask your child about the pattern books he or she has tried to write.
