I have been helping the three Kindergarten classes during writing class every day. In writing class, we are learning the sounds of each letter in the alphabet. With those sounds we can spell any word we want, saying it slowly and writing the sounds we hear.

In this picture, we are writing the letter we hear with play dough. We also use whiteboards. In another class, we are practicing writing “true stories.” These are stories about something that actually happened, like what we did over the weekend or ate for breakfast. The students draw three pictures and sound out short sentences for each picture.
