Kennedy came up to me last night, after being sent to bed, with paper in hand. "My teacher just loooooves topic sentences momma. I came up with a good one, and wrote about butterflies because we've learned all about them in class." Then she showed me her paper that she wrote all by herself. I'm very proud of my little kindergartener, for having such desire to practice her writing, and to take what she learns in school and use it at home.
I'll translate her writing for you.
T=budrflise4 (Topic sentence: Butterflies. 4 sentences)
I will tel you three ideus uddot budrflise. (I will tell you three ideas about butterflies.)
First budrflise flie. (First, butterflies fly.)

Thrd, budrflise hach in eggs entena theay hach. (Third, butterflies hatch in eggs, antenna they hatch.)
Foorth budrflise hach. (Fourth, butterflies hatch.)
She couldn't wait to get out the door this morning, to give her topic sentence to her teacher. I'm proud of her.
