Writing

We have been formatting our stories in sequence using 3 photos.  We tell a story saying: first, next, and last.  Just like in a story we retell by saying what happened in the: beginning, middle, and end.


We have been writing our stories making sure we begin our sentence, using the transition words: First, Next, Last with a capital letter.  We conclude each sentence with punctuation (.  ?  !)  We know to put a punctuation mark before we use our next transition word.
