Students are learning the writing process. They make a plan for a story, conference with the Kumu, and may choose to publish their story to read in Author’s chair. Give them lots of experiences so they will have many ideas for a story. Students are beginning to make sense that their words can be put into writing. Here’s a developmental writing chart for Kindergarten. You can support your child by encouraging invented spelling. I have also posted our writing rubric expectations for the year.
