mamakimberly Posted January 24, 2012 Share Posted January 24, 2012 Can a couple 2nd grade moms post a writing example from their child's journal? I'm not looking for copywork, but free writing or a story or something. My 9-year-old 3rd grader writes long stories and is in the middle of a story she's typing that is 18 pages typed (so far) with chapters and a plot and character development. I know it isn't fair to judge my younger daughter against her sister's love of writing and natural ability in that area. But I'm also wondering if she is anywhere near grade level in her writing. I'm not hung up on grade levels and I've seen each of my kids grow in spurts, but I am starting to wonder if she needs something a bit more intensive in writing. Here's a sample (all punctuation and spelling hers): ** Dance Recitel by Kate My name is ashly I love balet. I do 2 hours of balet a week. Mommy can I do the ricitel dance? Yes you can her Mom said. Yay ashly said. On The Ricidle day she was varry neves but When she got out on stag she peede in her ricidle outfit she was very abarits. When she did her spin she fell over. Peple thoght it was funny. She did not give up. When she Went home her mom made her cocioes. Thank you Ashly said. ** Thoughts? Is this ok for 2nd grade?
