I have spent the last several days teaching writing in classrooms all over the district. One thing is certain, writing with little ones can be very challenging. Over the years and through others, I have learned a lot about teaching little ones to write. I have attached a ppt below with a lot of the ideas I have discovered through various resources, including books, blogs, other people, etc.
My two favorite kindergarten blogs for finding writing ideas are A Place Called Kindergarten and Kindergals.
If we do not give our little ones the support they need early on, they will not move ahead with the writing skills they need to be successful. Kindergartners needs lots of practice, lots of modeling, and lots of encouragement. Novelty and variety goes a long way too!
If you are working with parents, teachers, or older students who are struggling with writing, check out online writing tutoring as an intervention possibility.
I have tried to give the proper credit to others when using their ideas, but in some cases, I saved pictures from Pinterest and could not remember where they came from. Sorry :( If you have any questions about any of the information in the ppt, please comment below and ask :) and if you see a picture of yours and it was labeled as from Pinterest.... comment and let us know its your great idea :)
