At one point in my preparation to teach, I heard that the Rudimentary Essay was going to change from having a period at the end of the first sentence to having a colon. For example, from p. 54 in the Teacher's Guide, 4th Ed.:
"Edmund should not have followed the White Witch for three reasons: Edmund's sister..." Am I to be teaching my students to use the colon or the period?
I am loving this curriculum!!! Many thanks for all you are doing to help us teach our children to write well!!!
Sincerely, Christine Nickelsen
