Morning Message

    This is the time of year that everything starts coming together in kindergarten -- all the days of repetition start to pay off, and these 5 and 6 year old kids make me proud.  Yesterday I asked one of my girls to write the morning message -- she's been doing some good writing in class, and I thought she might be ready.  She was!! Except for "Dear grrls and buss," she spelled nearly everything correctly, even carefully copying "Thursday" from the calendar.  It is so satisfying to see them using all the rules for "5 Star Writing." 
  •  Start with a capital
  •  Punctuation at the end of sentences.
  •  Spaces between words
  •  Neat
  •  Makes sense
       Now I have others eagerly waiting for their turn to write -- I LOVE MY JOB!!
