Why do you do group writing?
Each day we make time for a writer's workshop that provides children with opportunities to learn and practice skills in story telling (book making) and writing.
As we involve the children in story telling and book making we are always asked how do I make the letter...
So what did we do?
In Preschool we work really hard on letter recognition and begging sounds, knowing the letters of the alphabet at preschool age is related to both short and long term reading proficiency. That is why we need to be giving children apple opportunities to experiment and practice using the alphabet.
Create a Letter and Word Center
By providing alphabet materials it increases children's opportunities to engage in alphabet learning. Include ABC Books, Magnetic Letters, Word Puzzles and ABC letter matching puzzles.
Small Group Activites

Roll and Count
Have child roll a dice and identify the number on the dice, next have the child count out the number of feathers to match the number on the dice. Once child has the right amount of feathers have child place the feathers around the body of the turkey. When turkey has all its feathers child is done. With this number game all children are winners.
