Reflecting on what you have learned

Reflecting on What You Have Learned in
Unit 4: Emergent Writing

You have been learning about many important emergent writing skills prekindergarten children need to know and be able to do in preparation for kindergarten. In this unit we discussed key instructional strategies that can be used every day to help your children master these skills.

Before you move on to Unit 5, take a few minutes to reflect on these questions that were posed at the beginning of this unit:

  • What are some of the things you can do in your classroom to make daily writing activities playful and play-based?
  • When do key opportunities occur throughout your day for writing with children?


Moving On

Moving On...

Research conducted across the last several decades tells us that emergent literacy knowledge and skills developed during prekindergarten are the key foundations upon which much later reading, writing, and content learning capabilities are built. You have read how specific instructional strategies can build these skills. Now we will take a look at how organizing and planning the learning environment can support these instructional strategies in Unit 5.
