Four Square Writing Homework Dear Parents, This week your child will start homework in writing. Your child will get the Writing Packet on Monday. It will not be due until Friday. It is important that you read the cover sheet and follow all the directions carefully. Your child should not complete the writing homework without parent help. The one-on-one guidance you will give your child will be a wonderful way to help your child be a successful first grade writer. During the year your child will learn to write clear and coherent sentences using correct punctuation and capitals. We will work on stretching the sentences with adjectives and details that tell when, where, and why. As we get better at writing sentences we will work on writing narratives or stories and also expository paragraphs. We will go step by step so that your child is able to complete these writing lessons. Included in the homework packet this week are the first grade writing rubrics that will help you see what is expected of your child this year. Please keep these rubrics at home for your reference. I appreciate your support in helping your child. Thank you!
