Teaching kids to read and write is a developmental process. As we teach them strategies along the way, they develop and grow in their knowledge of how words work. As this knowledge is applied to their reading and writing, they progress in their abilities as well. All kids develop at their own rate. No two kids do it exactly the same. For me, it really is a beautiful thing to watch.
Today, Ann of The Measured Mom is sharing more about the early stages of writing development. What does writing look like? And more importantly, what are some teaching strategies for kids in this developmental stage of writing? Love it!
