      Kindergartners LOVE secret messages! They learn to write by writing real sentences that have personal meaning. The powerful sentence "I love you!" allows children to practice basic handwriting motions with secret messages that are taken home and hidden for families to find. From Kindergarten Writing and the Common Core:Joyful Pathways to Accelerated Literacy! by Nellie Edge. Updated 2014.

Children love being expert readers and writers of emotionally powerful language. . . an engaging and authentic literacy experience from "Kindergarten Writing and the Common Core", by Nellie Edge.
