Retelling The Billy Goats Gruff During Play

Dear Dillon,

You were very interested in our inquiry into stories. You enjoyed listening to different fairy tales and even brought in your own fairy tales book from home. You especially liked the story of The Billy Goats Gruff. Here you are taking action and retelling the story with friends during your free play:


When I asked you about this work, you said: 

"I did a good job of being the big Billy Goat."

Writing: Before & After

Dear Dillon,

You have made a lot of progress in writing this year. Here is a sample of your work from September:


This piece shows that you relied on drawings, images and 'mock linear' writing to express your ideas. Here is a sample of your work from May:



This piece shows that you now know many letters and understand that letters go together to make words. You are experimenting with invented spelling and can sometimes record correct letter-sound connections using your knowledge of the alphabet. You have also worked hard this year on adding details to your drawings to make sure they are clear. 

Congratulations on your progress Dillon! You have worked hard on your writing! 

Ms. Alison
