Souvenir Bit Examples for Parents

The students did a great job with their souvenir bits! I’ve had a few parents ask me if they are doing it properly, so I decided to borrow 2 examples from the previous homework to share. The main thing we are looking for is a story retelling. I need to see that student can determine the important parts of a story and can retell them in order. Here are 2 examples for The Snowy Day

Student #1

“Peter woke up and saw snow. He got dressed and went outside. Peter made prints in the snow with his feet. He also hit a tree with a stick and the snow fell on him. He tried to bring home a snowball in his pocket, but it melted. The next day there was more snow. Peter went across the hall to get his friend and they played in the deep, deep, snow!”

Student #2

“The character’s name was Peter. He woke up one morning and there was snow. He was excited to play in it. He wanted to play in a snowball fight with the big kids, but he is too small. He made a snowball and by the next day it was melted. It snowed again and then he got to play outside again.”

I hope these help.
Please let me know if you have any questions!
