With adventures, comic characters, and mishaps, silly letter stories are a perfect genre for encouraging students’ language development. This writing residency helps students recognize different phonetic sounds while discovering how to write a short story. Depending on the grade level of the students, teachers decide what sounds the children need to explore. Together, the class writes and dramatizes a story using a word containing the target sound in every sentence. Arianna guides students as they write and perform their own creative stories.
