You should have received a Standard Snapshot on purple paper at the end of the week. Below is the student work and an explanation of the work in case you missed it! Attached to this piece of standard work should have been a piece of your child's work.
The children have been working on instructions for something that they feel they are experts. Sometimes this is called functional, "how to," or procedural writing. We are delighted that the work that was featured in this Kindergarten Standard Snapshot that went home to the entire grade level was selected from OUR class! This is Madison's work and we are so very proud of her! Madison tells how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich! She s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-s each word and writes the sounds that she hears and uses spaces between words. She includes a list of materials that she needs and sequences the steps. This is exactly what we expect our kindergartners to do this time of year. Congratulations Madison on representing our class so well!
