Sara- I have taught in a younger preschool classroom and used a more emergent, self-directed approach to handwriting. We used some of the HWT materials but never worked straight from the curriculum.  

I am, however, very well versed in using emergent curriculum.  I have been teaching in an Early Childhood program for the last 15 years using this approach.  While I haven't used it in the early primary years, I am sure I could help.  Do you have a provocation that you are thinking of starting with?  Are you referring to a Cycle of Inquiry to examine documentation?  How are you gathering documentation?  Lots of questions I know but trying to see how I can help.

I am in the unique position of teaching Pre-K in the morning and 1st math, reading, spelling, and phonics in the afternoon.  Wondering if anyone can answer a couple of questions for me . . .

1. for Pre-K I teach Handwriting Without Tears handwriting and like the developmental sequence for that (I use many of their manipulative as well); however, I want to teach letters that are harder to master early in the year so they are reinforced over a longer period of time.  We have followed HWT sequence and done letter of the week; however, I am thinking of going more thematic (not letter oriented) and featuring a letter each week and a different letter for handwriting.  Does anyone approach letters like this (or in another way)?

2.  Is anyone using emergent curriculum in early primary?  Where did you start?

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More

"My preference is this website is best. Twitter is used for social purpose and EDUPLN is used for professional discussion which you cannot discuss on social platforms."
