This year as a district the kindergarten staff decided to start the year with a month of interactive writing. I love interactive writing, so this was music to my ears! Come October, we will begin Writers Workshop and are hoping that the month of writing 'training' and 'guiding' will help make it easier for our kinders as they embark on becoming an independent writer! So last week we used 'Pete the Cat' as our inspiration for writing!

By following a proper developmental progression, we assist the child’s natural learning capabilities.
