Over the next month we will be focusing on writing. The schools use the program called Six Traits Writing. Below is the writing rubric that the schools use from the end of first grade to the end of 5th grade. The scores are as followed:
Scores of 15 or below = Do not meet the benchmarks
Scores of 16 – 24 = Meet bench marks
Scores of 25 – 30 = Exceeds benchmarks
Here are some activities that your child could do over the holidays and vacations:
Keep a journal of what it is like around the house during the holidays/winter.
Take a picture and have them write about what is going on in the picture.
Let them draw a picture and create a story.
As a family, write a story, each person writes a sentence and then passes it to the next person.
Here are some websites that you and your children can look at to give some more ideas on how to work on writing.
