Writing Their Words: Strategies for Supporting Young Authors
Tunks, Karyn W.; Giles, Rebecca M.
Young Children, v64 n1 p22-25 Jan 2009
Young children benefit from having their stories written down and shared with others. The authors highlight two strategies for supporting young writers: taking dictation and translating "kid writing." They explain why both are important in introducing the purpose of writing and the functions of printed language. The article offers tips to teachers and strategies to involve families.
