Monday, February 3, 2014

This is the time of year when reading and writing in kindergarten begins to sprout up all around.

First thing this morning Noah handed me a couple of sheets of paper on which he wrote FAT CAT and FAT DINOSAUR along with illustrations to go with the words he wrote.

This kind of writing is called "emergent" literacy by reading specialists. It's fun to see literacy emerge from the students like the daffodils and jonquils emerging in garden beds.

The word DINOSAUR is written left to right bottom to top. It's all there.
Be well.
