    Writing will take place everyday.  We start by working on our phonics with our sound/spelling cards.  The children work on at least two sounds each week.  Our spelling words are aligned to the sounds we are working on during class.  The class is focusing on sentence writing in which the goals for your children are to write complete sentences using detailed information while also attending to correct capitalization/punctuation.  
    Our next writing project will be an opinion piece.  The children will learn to write a paragraph on their opinion of a certain topic.  We will do quite a few of these to practice expressing our opinions and using transition words.
