Clip to ScrapBook #5

It depends on what is expected, if it is a one or two page story of four to maybe 8 lines, the more able writing children could easily do it in 2 days of 20-30 minute writing time, that would not be the case for most kids though. But it would not be the final publishing of the story, it would be first draft and no added details and rechecking of the work. However struggling kids whether through idea generating or because of being a beginning writer would not produce much in 1-2 days.

I would just turn in what your child has done, don't worry about it and add more stuff later to the story. The worst that happens is your daughter gets a lower grade in writing, but a more in depth growth in her writing ability. Also if the teacher is pretty new to teaching second she may not know, or it may be in the classroom she is good at dragging the kids forward in writing and is finding it hard to switch expectations. I think it would be good to talk to her, this might be a general "here is a optimistic hope rather than a must do."
