Writing Units

  • Writing is an important communication skill.  It gives learners an avenue to learn all the rules of their language and how they can organize their thoughts and ideas better so that so many can understand their message.  Strong writing skills have been linked to critical thinking skills so in Pre-K we begin to explore our world through pictures and words.  We focus on concepts such as School, Family, and Things I Know.  Letters lead to words and words lead to thoughts.
