our Hello Families!
Today we are bringing home our Weekend News, or Monday Muscle Minutes! I hope you will sit down with your first grader and look through this book. We have been writing in this space each Monday for the entire year. In the past 6weeks we have been writing without stopping for a set amount of time each week to help us build stamina and to discover how writing builds more writing.
This is not the space to worry about spelling, periods, or handwriting. This is space where our writers simply learn to let go and write without worry!
You might notice the length of writing has grown, the ideas are becoming more connected and are coming more easily!
Sit down with your writer and ask THEM to share what growth they see! Then, over break invite your writer to return to this book and write! Return the book Monday!
If you fill it up, still return it and I will give your writer a new book, so write on!
