This unit was designed to teach emergent writers about print concepts associated with words, as well as how to use resources and strategies to spell words so that they can communicate their ideas during the beginning stages of writing.
Teaching Points include:
A word is made up of letters.
The letters in a word are written from left to right.
There are two kinds of spaces we use when writing words.
Some words begin with a capital/uppercase letter.
The letters in a word can be tall, small, or fall.
We can use snap words to help us write.
We can use wall words to help us write.
We can use look-alike words to help us write.
We can use sound spelling to help us write.
We write words that tell what we want to say, not just what we know how to spell.
The lessons are supported by several anchor charts and a scoring guide/rubric.
