Ask Me Anything!

Here is a fun way to practice asking and writing questions at home! I have set up a Formspring account where students can ask me questions. Here are the instructions on how to do this:

1.) First have your child think of a question they want to ask.

2.)Have your child count the words in the sentence two times.

3.)Have your child write the sentence down on a piece of paper.

4.)As your child is writing their sentence, help the sound out their words. (Don’t tell them the spelling!) Make sure they are hearing beginning, middle, and ending sounds and transferring them to their writing. (Again, don’t tell them the spelling!) If it’s misspelled but has correct sounds, then it is fine!

5.) Help them use correct sentence structure. Make sure the only capital letter is the beginning of the sentence. (And for names, too!) The rest of the letters should be lowercase.

6.) Make sure your child is putting spaces in between their words.

7.) Punctuation! Make sure they end the sentence with a question mark!

8.) Help them type their questions into the Formspring question box. Click “SEND”.

9.) Check back to the website to see if your question has been answered!

This is a very fun way to practice sounding out words, sentence structure, letter formation, and all sorts of elements of writing. Ask as many questions as you would like! I’ll be checking to see what kinds of questions our kids want to ask! 🙂
