Joyful Writing in PreK contains 125 lessons (100 writing minilessons + 25 interactive writing lessons) that spark creativity, imagination, and learning. Writing minilessons are brief, focused, explicit lessons that help children understand and expand on the characteristics of effective writing and nurture their ability to write with purpose, imagination and voice. Each minilesson engages children in inquiry that leads to the discovery of a general principle from The Literacy Continuum.
This module is designed to support PreK and Kindergarten students’ foundational skills development with a collection of short, engaging videos featuring TCRWP Staff Developers speaking directly to learners. One set of videos focuses on supporting children’s knowledge of High Frequency Words (i.e. “look,” “how,” “because”), and another set of videos supports children’s phonological awareness.
