Very early writing is indicative of unconscious, or implicit knowledge of writing conventions.

As children’s knowledge of writing develops, their implicit knowledge gradually becomes more explicit knowledge that they learn to use to communicate meaning.

The more children interact with print in various forms, the more likely they will develop explicit knowledge and awareness of writing conventions. It is for this reason that we are always using creative ways to practice our writing. From tracing letters in sand, to writing them in pencil, we enjoy literacy!

For this activity, we discussed the different shapes that form letters. We learned that some of these shapes are round, some are pointy and some are jagged. Using tweezers and pom poms, we created a letter L. They then traced Ls in sand. Lastly, we learned how to write an L with large pencils!
