As we begin our new year, some of the goals are changing in the classroom environment. Today we learned that using big sentences with lots of detail makes us sound more interesting. Adding details ensures that children move beyond just stating what they know to explaining how they know what they know. This is a very important skill as your child moves forward in his/her education. In our room we have posted this goal:
Use big sentences with lots of details when you talk and when you write.
