The tools we write with in preschool

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on September 8, 2011

in Language Arts, Tools for Writing

Writing skills are developed through a variety of tools in our preschool…

We often use our fingers to write with…

We use crayons to write with…

We use pencils to write with…

We write with chalk…

We use markers, paper, ink dot daubers, and ink stamps…

And more, which I will share throughout this school year but the main point I want to share today is that building an interest in writing and developing pre-writing skills can happen naturally as children are given a variety of tools and opportunities to explore the writing process…

First we want to strengthen fine motor skills and second, we want to make sure that we are keeping the writing process fun and inviting…

What tools for writing do you like to use? I am always on the look out for more fun ideas…
