Writing Tip-Building Confidence
When they write, just remind them to write down any sounds that they hear. If you would like me to send home an alphabet chart like we use in class, I will be happy to do so! When they are finished, have them read their writing back to you, being able to read their writing is a huge step with writing. Many times they will say "I don't remember what it says!" I remind them that authors don't memorize their stories, they read them! If they are unable to read them or you see that their words do not match what they wrote, have them go back and look at the first letter of each word and use different strategies or have them edit it to put more sounds in until they are able to read their writing.
***Think of reading like this too! Build up their confidence! For example, if they read, "Mary had a little land" instead of "Mary had a little lamb" does it help them if you just say lamb? A helpful strategy is to say, "go back and read that sentence again," or find another way to have them use a strategy to solve the word. This will make them better readers without crushing their confidence as readers!
