Thank you Leah Wallace at SD 43 for your examples!  I love the kid writing!

Exploring the Communication Core Competency through story, the learners read the story “Sorry I Forgot to Ask.” Through this story the learners identified that a note left by the characters mother was not specific enough and was the reason that the kids in the story got in trouble. From there, the learners re-wrote the note using their understanding of what communication looks like, sounds like and acts like.  Cassie McGuinness, Grade 1/2 teacher, SD43.
