“If we want children to become strong writers we have to support them in the very beginning, (3,4,5 yrs old) both in terms of conventions and composition. One does not come before the other. It is not enough to be able to spell well.”
Spend a day with author and consultant Matt Glover discussing his work teaching children to be writers and readers.
Learn about the role that mentor texts plays in teaching children to be authors, what it means to read like a writer, and how to project a unit of study for writing.
Celebrate the approximations of students as writers and readers, from the earliest years through upper elementary, in order to nudge them to the next level of their own writing continuum.
There is always something new to learn when you hear Matt Glover speak about literacy!
