In writing, we have moved on from personal narrative to procedural writing (how to writing, in first grade parlance). Talking to your students about the steps needed to do things (first, we turn on the water, next we fill the watering can half way, third we...) is a developmentally appropriate way to help your child with this procedural writing and thinking. Today, for example, we made toast, and discussed and wrote about the steps in class.
The Halloween Happening is tomorrow at 5:30! I plan to attend, and I look forward to seeing those of you who can join us there! Thank you!
