Using the Alphabet

The 6 and 7 year olds in my class use the alphabet in expected ways when writing. I am teaching them how to plan their writing and they are writing their ideas down in a graphic organiser.

When they write down their ideas, I encourage them to sound out the words so that they can spell them. Spelling, expression, grammer and punctuation will be corrected when they have written their rough copy.

    1. From this plan they write their paragraph in French. They are expected to speak French as well and the aim is to make them fluent. I teach French immersion and I am therefore helping them to read, write and speak in French.
