Children's Writing: An Approach for the Primary Grades.
Sealey, Leonard; And Others
The writing activities in this book are designed to help children build writing skills through the communication of their own ideas, discoveries, and feelings. Developed and field tested as part of a basic skill development project, the book presents a rationale for primary children's writing, outlines the fundamentals of teaching writing, and offers detailed suggestions regarding classroom management. The specific, and often illustrated, lesson plans outline sequences of activities and suggest immediate and subsequent follow-up exercises. They cover a wide variety of writing activities including personal scrapbooks, playing with words, class books, greeting cards, nonsense rhymes and stories, comic strips, television guides, science journals, tall tales, and yarns.
