Iʻd like to share with you a story written by one of my studentʻs before I share the website that this blog is devoted to. It conveys the important message that we must always start with the child and celebrate their mana`o and experiences before we get to the concepts of the prescribed curriculum.
Wen I went to the acoreaum in Mawe it was fun. The frst anumal I saw was a leprd sharc. The secent anamol I saw was a japunes crab. He was snaping at the litol crab. The thrd anumol I saw was a ribin eol. It was scare as godzilla. The forth anumol I saw was a grat wite sharc. It was fast as a cheeta! The fift anumol I saw was a hamr head sharc. It looced like it was eating a rock. The sixt anamol I saw was a watr snak. It was scarey. The last ananol I saw was a hupbac wal. It was sooper fat. I hope I can go t the acoreoom agen. I wish to go agen won day. The end
This was a story written by a student who really doesnʻt like to write, or well, we thought he didnʻt! Go to www.literacyconnections.com and click on the “For Parents” option and find the link “In Their Own Words”. Whatʻll you find there are the ideas that I structured this studentʻs writing on. Youʻll also find this website full of other great resources for parents.
Let me know what you think!
