Supporting the Development of Young Writers

Writing is our window into the heart of the reader. Through writing we learn what a child is thinking and which phonic skills are deeply understood. A rich tapestry of modeled writing, interactive writing and personal writing builds a foundation for extending and tuning the writing strategies of young children. High quality literature in fiction and nonfiction set models for craft and style, empowering children to reach new heights as they read like a writer... and tools for building confidence and passion with the pen!
