Grade 1 has made it’s first (cautious) steps in writing English stories. Their first remarks when they are asked to write is: “BUT WE DON’T KNOW HOW TO WRITE IT!”
Well.. nonsense! Everybody can write! We are all writers. Just listen to the word and streeeetch it out like bubblegum. Which letters do you hear while you are stretching? And then all of a sudden all everyone had at least one whole sentence on their paper. All written by themselves without any help on their spelling.
Even though it’s not always the correct spelling, me and others can still read your story. And that’s what it is all about: that we can read what you had in mind and what you want to say. The rest will come.. step by step!
