Read Aloud and Writing Workshop

This morning, Mrs. Lorenz read us her favorite story from when she was a child.  That book is "Mama, Do You Love Me?" by Barbara M. Joosse.  We really liked hearing it!

In Writing Workshop, we are learning what writers do.  First, writers have to think of an idea to write about.  We know that it is good to write about something that we know lots about!

Then we sketch our idea.  Did you know that sketch means to draw something quick?

Next, we try to write some words to go with our picture.  To do this, we stretch out the words and listen carefully to the sounds that the letters in the words make.  Then we write down the sounds we hear.  We do the best we can and move on!

At the end of Writing Workshop, we always take some time to admire some of our writing samples.


Tomorrow we will finish up our Science unit on trees.  Be sure you ask us to tell you all the parts of a tree!
