Early Writing & Literacy

This week, one of our main focuses will be writer’s workshop/bookmaking. As children begin their voyage into writing and literacy, their ever growing knowledge may present itself in different ways. Some children may make books with no words at all, but are still able to tell their story. Some will write scribble or swirly lines that represent “faux” writing. Some will begin to write familiar letters or strings of letters and some may even be further along in their adventures into literacy!  It is important to recognize that all of these early representations are amazing and mean a great deal to a child’s development in these areas. Better yet, it gives teaching points that we can build upon next!
