CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.1.3 Write narratives in which they recount two or more appropriately sequenced events, include some details regarding what happened, use temporal words to signal event order, and provide some sense of closure. WOW! A lot for firsties who are learning to read AND write. We “JUMP” in! 🙂
Much easier to write about yourself, than others.
My kiddos are just beginning to understand LANGUAGE.
A LOT FOR A 7 year old!
HOW? HOW? HOW? Breathe… We TALK… A LOT!
We share our ideas. We draw. We draw some more. We chart ideas. We sound out words ( the best we can ).
We share. We edit. We write more. And we FIX IT!
Is it perfect? NO!
Is it OK?
YES! Writing is a process. It takes TIME! And practice. And MORE practice!
I want my kiddos to WANT to write. Not for ME…for themselves!
The LOVE of writing is a GIFT! Give them a GIFT!

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.
