Transcript

  • 1. Stages of Writing Development Preliterate: Drawing Preliterate: Scribbling Early Emergent: Letter-like forms Emergent: Random-letters or letter strings Transitional: Writing via invented spelling Fluency: Conventional spelling
  • 2. Preliterate: Drawing • uses drawing to stand for writing • believes that drawings / writing is communication of a purposeful message • read their drawings as if there were writing on them
  • 3. Preliterate: Scribbling • scribbles but intends it as writing • scribbling resembles writing • holds and uses pencil like an adult
  • 4. Early Emergent: Letter-like forms • shapes in writing actually resemble letters • shapes are not actually letters • look like poorly formed letters, but are unique creations
  • 5. Emergent: Random-letters or letter strings • uses letter sequences perhaps learned from his/her name • may write the same letters in many ways • long strings of letters in random order
  • 6. Transitional: Writing via invented spelling • creates own spelling when conventional spelling is not known • one letter may represent an entire syllable • words may overlay • may not use proper spacing • as writing matures, more words are spelled conventionally • as writing matures, perhaps only one or two letters invented or omitted
  • 7. Fluency: Conventional spelling • usually resembles adult writing
