Overview

As teachers, we do indeed live narrative lives, and if you read Engaging Young Writers, Preschool-Grade 1, Matt Glover will help you live out new kinds of stories with the children you teach. I know he's helped me do just that. I'm a better teacher because of what I've learned from him. —Katie Wood Ray, author of About the Authors

We are so fortunate to have this book. Matt shares his deep understanding of young writers, presents a thoughtful and warm approach to teaching writing, and shows us how to nudge children in ways that are condiderate of their interest and intentions as well as their intellectual development. —Kathy Collins, author of Growing Readers

Many children come to school wanting to write. But some are unsure about getting started or don't realize they have something to say. Motivating students to put markers to paper is the key that unlocks a lifetime of writing. Engaging Young Writers presents a range of entry points that helps every student find a way into writing.

In Engaging Young Writers, Matt Glover(coauthor of Already Ready) presents ways to encourage students to pick up the pen and share their remarkable thinking. With multiple entry points for writers, he helps you match your teaching to children's individual interests and patterns of learning. Glover shows how you can:

• nudge writers into action through meaning, choice, and purpose

• invite preschool children to write through conversation and invite primary students through units of study

• spark imaginative writing though read-aloud and dramatic play

• inspire kids to write stories from personal experiences

• give students the chance to share their passions and interests through nonfiction writing

Engaging Young Writers features teaching tested in real classrooms and the student samples to back it up. Glover takes special care to address how his ideas can be applied to the unique development needs of writers in preschool, kindergarden, and grade one.

Inside every child is a writer. Inside you is the desire to give children a great start. Inside Engaging Young Writers is the teaching to help you create that wonderful moment when your students decide to become the writer within.
