We are Writers!

It’s halfway through the school year and all of us have already proven how truly great writers we are. We have been practicing how to be good writers since the first day of school. Writing is not just about knowing how to write and form our letters properly.¬†As good and growing writers, we write not just for the sake of writing. We are able to practice our writing skills in everything that we do. This is called meaningful writing – writing with a purpose and embedding it in our everyday lives.

Writing is not just all about knowing how to form our letters properly. We believe that we have worked hard almost mastering this skill. We do a lot of fun activities to help us with our letter formation. One of our favourites is doing our Letter Art. Oh what a fun way to learn our letters!

We are slowly levelling up to writing just the beginning sounds of words to spelling REAL words. We first had to master identifying what the beginning, middle, and ending sounds are. We found this task pretty easy so we would sometimes challenge ourselves to spell an entire word by ourselves!

We are also able to connect our reading skills to our writing. Our teacher told us that good readers must also be good writers. One of the games that we enjoyed the most is a game called “Write the Room” wherein we try to locate for the word our teacher says around the classroom, then copy it on our notebooks.

Reading our passwords is also not enough! We also wanted to learn how to write it. Slowly, we are learning how to spell these words by finding the missing letters. So far, we are doing an awesome job!

Another way we incorporate writing to our daily routine is linking it with our other topics. Recently our class talked about Arctic Animals. These are animals that live in the Arctic region.

After building our own Arctic Home and making our Arctic Animals out of clay, we labelled our animals on a post-it. We enjoy labelling our works.

One of the most important areas in our classroom is the Word Wall. It is where we put words that we know how to spell in alphabetical order. When we have trouble spelling words that we have learnt, we take a look at the word wall, try to locate the word by identifying its beginning sound and then copying it on our papers. It’s not only a great way to practice our writing, but as well as our reading skills.

Recently, we have also been using our own Dictionaries. Our teacher showed us different types of dictionaries from the school library. These are books that are also in alphabetical order just like our word wall and would show us how to spell and define certain words. This book, unlike our story books, has more words than pictures.

IMG_7931 IMG_7934e decided to make our own dictionaries wherein we would write new words that we learn and also drawing a small picture or symbol on the side to help us remember what the word is in case we forget.

We have also been practicing how to write sentences. Sentences are a group of words. We really challenge our selves to sound out and spell each word and letter sound found in sentences. Can you believe we can do this even if we’re just 4 and 5 year olds?

Writing sentences is pretty easy for us! Soon, we hope to write our own books and show everyone what good writers we are!
