The rightgift everytime!
Children learn most of what they need about literacy by reading books and writing stories. But many children in our classrooms have not learned how to attend to print. Learning a few words well can and will help these children gain footholds in print. There are many ways to practice learning a word. Building the word with magnetic letters and writing the word can be a powerful way to help children remember a new word. For many children working on the first few words will take more than one day of practice. Use just a minute or two at the beginning of your guided reading lesson to review a few words you have been working on.
