Early childhood, kindergarten, special education, and first grade teachers should have Writing Experiences for Young Learners in their personal libraries. The book is filled with a wealth of clearly organized, developmentally appropriate materials that supports the early literacy position statements of NCTE (National Council of Teachers of English), IRA (International Reading Association), and NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children).
Educators can tell you that the importance of reading has been well documented. However, other components of literacy, such as writing, have garnered far less attention. Writing Experiences for Young Learners provides activities and meaningful learning opportunities for emergent and beginning writers and information for educators in the following ways:
· Defining standards and skills―what is developmentally appropriate and what the standards are for teaching each age and stage
· Explaining emergent writing―how writing is an important part of literacy development and how parents can support the process of learning how to write
· Highlighting writing basics―tips for strengthening the mechanics and content of writing
· Creating a writing environment―giving children the tools to compose in various ways
· Facilitating writing experiences―offering a variety of writing activities that target the development of beginning to more advanced skills
Each activity in Writing Experiences for Young Learners is broad enough to correlate with multiple curriculum themes or may be used as a stand-alone writing experience. Also provided are suggestions for expanding or simplifying the activities so that teachers can easily modify each idea to meet the needs of young learners. Additionally, cross-curricular activities have been included to strengthen the connection between writing and other skill development focuses.
Young children should learn that writing is a means of communicating thoughts and information, and that writing can be found everywhere. Giving children opportunities to interact with writing in a variety of ways will help foster the development of their writing skills. Before you know it, you may have a whole classroom of great (and eager) writers!
