      I can... use pictures and words to help tell a story.

      I can... write sentences about a topic and use correct punctuation and capitalization.

       Steps of the Lesson:

       1. Listen to "If I Were President" by Catherine Stier.  (Some stories have a closed caption "CC" icon so that your child can read along.)

      2. Draw pictures of three of the things children would do if they were president (from the story.)

      3. Tell an adult about your three pictures.

      4. Think about what YOU would do if you were the president, then complete the writing activity below.

           Work to be turned in:  Pictures of three things the children in the story would do if they were president. (30 minutes)


      5. When you have completed your video and writing activity, please read books of your choosing for "read to self" time.  (15 minutes) Your child may choose to read books from home, digital books on Starfall or any website of your choosing.

           *Work to be turned in:  Parent signature at the bottom with a sentence showing how many minutes your child spent on read to self time.  



      Steps of the Lesson:

      1.  Imagine you are the president.  Write a story about what you would do if you were president. Start with these words:  If I were president...

      2.  Use your best sounding out strategies, but try to spell any sight words you use correctly.  Don't forget to use a capital letter to start your sentences, spaces between your words and punctuation at the end.

      3.  Draw a picture that matches your story. 

      4.  Parents-you may help your child sound out their words, but allow them to write "authentically" and use the letters they feel look right.  

                 *Work to be turned in:  Two or three sentence story about what your child would do if they were the president with accompanying illustration. (30 minutes)
