Promoting Preschoolers' Emergent Writing Skills

Procedural knowledge is the mechanics of letter and word writing (e.g., name writing) and includes spelling and gaining alphabet knowledge. Learning the alphabetic code (including how to form letters and the sounds associated with each letter) is an essential component of gaining procedural knowledge. Children benefit from having multiple opportunities throughout the day to develop fine motor skills and finger dexterity using a variety of manipulatives (e.g., magnetic letters, pegboards) and writing implements.--NAEYC

We give our students ample opportunities throughout the day for writing. One time in particular is during our morning small group activities. Other times include during free play, in learning centers, and even on the playground. Our friends love learning to write and spell :-)
