Welcome to Active Learning with Rae, a video series in which I offer ideas for active learning in the content areas of emergent literacy, math, science, social studies, music, and art! I’ll also offer suggestions for using movement to ensure peaceful, learning-filled transitions. And I’ll tackle one of every teacher’s biggest concerns: classroom management – especially as it relates to active, moving children! Enjoy – and be sure to subscribe so you won’t miss any tips and tricks!
Emergent literacy: Prep for reading and writing!
Reading and writing involve more than letter recognition and decoding, word comprehension, and the fine motor skills needed to use a pencil. Reading and writing occur from top to bottom and from left to right. And letters are made up of straight and curvy lines that must be read and written in a certain direction to be understood. So spatial awareness and directionality must be a significant part of the young child’s experience…because that will translate onto the page!
