One of the biggest portions of daily life in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten is them taking their first steps in writing. Teachers should praise every attempt a child makes writing on his or her own. They should utilize their writing sample to guide their writing instruction. With this assessment, a teacher can actively see the student's growth in writing a sentence as well as it will help the teacher see and teach to the child's level of developmental writing. Each quarter the student writes a sentence and their progress is tracked in their portfolio!
