Do you worry about your kids’ critical thinking skills? It’s natural to want your children to be equipped to handle the world as best as they can be.
Children learn critical reading and writing skills in the first grade. That is why I supplement my son’s magnet school education with extra practice at home. Plus, he gets bored and likes doing worksheets. I know, it’s weird.
These days, more and more people are writing in what I like to call “texting short-hand.” First words in sentences are not capitalized correctly. Sentences are not punctuated properly. That is why I feel it is even more important to stress these basic first grade editing principles.
The simple sentences are easy for first graders who are at different skill levels to read. I included a mix of questions, exclamatory sentences, and declarative sentences.
And it includes pie. Everything is better with pie 😉

I came up with these five sentences after I asked the kids what they remember about Thanksgiving. They remember the food. We don’t do Black Friday shopping because it takes away from Thanksgiving, in my opinion.
I think it is a bit unfair for what is arguably my favorite holiday to get overlooked due to Christmas–or worse yet, be seen as the precursor to the start of the Christmas shopping season.
Perhaps if we focus on Thanksgiving just a little bit more this year, the kids will grow up remembering Thanksgiving as a time to give thanks and enjoy their time with their family rather than as the meal they have before shopping all night.
