The students are off to a great start in their writing this year! We began with a focus on ideas and how to come up with ideas and make them clear during writing time. Recently, we have been focusing on refining the conventions in our writing, especially with punctuation, precise use of capital letters, clear spaces, and “grade two” inventive spelling. They’ve really enjoyed editing each other’s work for conventions, and sharing their writing with the class during author’s chair. 2B also worked hard to craft poems that reflected some of their favourite things, which you can see below!
