Preschool Teachers and Children's Emergent Writing: Supporting Diverse Learners
Dennis, Lindsay R.; Votteler, Nancy K.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v41 n6 p439-446 Nov 2013
Early literacy skill development is critical during the preschool years. Under that umbrella is emergent writing, a small but important component of overall literacy development. This article presents two writing strategies: (1) writers' workshop and (2) dictation within the context of storybook reading that preschool teachers can utilize to target emergent writing development. Modifications for diverse learners are also included throughout.
