Another exciting way we are helping our children with their writing skills is by providing them with a daily sign in sheet in the morning! This has become an exciting morning activity, because we put a picture of the child next to their name! They just LOVE finding each other and spelling their name. We want to invite our parents to make this a morning activity that you participate in with your child. There is a sign in area located by the entrance to the room, please take five minutes to sign in with your child ;0)
The dry erase board is provided with their names so they can practice trying to write each letter on their own…
We have noticed the extra time that the children are spending in this area. We are noticing writing all over the room, and the children are excited to spell everything. We will keep you posted on the progress of our writing skills!
As the children wake up from their naps, they have sheets with their names written on it.
It is their job to find their own name…this is placed their to see how many of them can recognize it without their picture being available!
Scribbles are beginning to appear more like letters and they may string several of these “letters” together to form mock words. They are becoming aware of the uses for writing and may dictate words for adults to write down.
We can’t wait to show you how each child’s skills will improve along the way. ;o)
