Toss the Chips

"When I was playing Toss the Chips I was counting and writing the numbers." - Adrian

Writing: Before & After

Dear Adrian,

You have made a lot of progress in writing this year. Here is a sample of your work from January:

This piece shows that you knew some consonant sounds and could use some words from our class word wall like 'we'. Here is a piece of your work from April:

This piece shows that you can now record many consonant and vowel sounds correctly, including beginning, middle, and ending sounds. You always write full ideas, which have turned into one or more sentences. You are also experimenting with spacing between words. 

Congratulations on your progress Adrian! You have worked hard on your writing!

A Beginning Reader

Dear Adrian,

Lately you have shown a greater interest in independent reading. You are able to sound out words using your alphabet knowledge and can recognize some words immediately. Here you are reading The Little Red Hen.

Star Name Handwriting

Dear Adrian,

You selected Star Name handwriting as one of your favourite word study activities. When viewing this piece of work, you explained: "I did good Cs, As, and Is. The tracing helps me concentrate on the writing."
