Book summary

Providing early writing experiences for children allows them to experience the joy associated with writing while mastering key aspects of literacy. Preschool teachers play an important role in developing young childrens writing because they not only observe childrens beginning understandings about writing but also help them realize how writing can be used to express meaning. This book, part of the Preschool Literacy Collection, describes preschoolers journey in learning to write and shows how you can contribute to that journey.

Authors Judith A. Schickedanz and Renée M. Casbergue provide a detailed picture of preschoolers writing developmentfrom scribble to script; from letter strings to real words; and from short, simple messages to coherent, detailed messages. You will learn how to identify and build the various strands of knowledge and skills that must come together for preschoolers to understand how print works. The chapters include numerous samples of childrens writing in both home and school contexts to help you identify the various types of writing your preschoolers are creating. Plus, youll find out how to set up an environment that supports preschoolers writing, how to assess preschoolers writing, and how to work with parents to support preschoolers writing development.

This book is an essential resource that preschool teachers and administrators can use to ensure that preschoolers become confident, competent writers. [via]
