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…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
