A Nellie Edge Kindergarten Writing Seminar strategy: Any time of year is a grand time to invite children to express gratitude and love by writing secret messages to take home and hide for their families to find... under their dad's pillow, in the refrigerator, under the computer. From "Sing, Sign, Spell, and Read! (CD, Anthology and Fingerspelling templates) by Nellie Edge.
Kindergarten-Friendly Handwriting begins with the letter "I" and songs and movement chants. Katie Nelson includes "heart word" and handwriting chants in the children's "I Can Read" notebook. Download the "I" Chant. Under the Free Poetry tab/September, find over 200 free songs, poems, chants, and rhymes for "I Can Read" notebooks.
Sample pages from “Kindergarten-Friendly Handwriting, Phonics, and Word Work.” by Nellie Edge. Our goal in these short handwriting, phonics, and word work lessons is to help children focus, review handwriting skills, and practice in an authentic context. Notice that each page is unique and includes opportunity for creative thinking and writing.
