When you kid gets home today, thank them for taking risks in their education. Today, everyone in the class shared their topic sentences with the entire class, not knowing if they wrote it correctly or not. They didn't know if classmates would talk about how effective it was, or if they would talk about how it really didn't work at all.
Everyone took the risk, and it was a great time of learning. Many people were able to improve their topic sentences just because they were able to see a lot of examples from their friends.
Also, thank them for making our classroom a safe place to take risks.
