The Kindergarten Weekly News
Kindergarteners are often enthusiastic writers and
they will entwine writing activities into their play. Provide budding writers with experiences that give them something to write about. Children at this age can translate their own drawing and are confident to read aloud their drawing!
What students are able to do as a writer?
• Students in the emergent stage of writing have an idea of what he/she wants to share.
• They use many details in their picture. They have several people in their picture — someone on the street, someone in a building, and a bus driver. The drawing has many details in the setting — buildings, a house, the street, and a sunny day.
• He shows a sense of balance by centering the picture on the page.
What do students need to learn next?
Students could begin to use letters and words to express his ideas by being encouraged to label the important parts of their picture with a beginning sound.
Taking dictation for students not yet fluent in writing allows students to see how oral language is translated into written language. Written words let students see what they say. Therefore, writing makes thoughts visible.
Continue to provide your student writer with experiences that give them something to write about. Trips to the park, post office, and grocery store provide real-life experiences that can be recorded by a new writer. Concept sorts are another great way to infuse new vocabulary into everyday conversations.
