Welcome to the companion website for Parallel Learning of Reading and Writing in Early Childhood!
This website is divided into the following sections:
- Childrenâ€™s Writing Samplesâ€”This robust section provides a forum for you to discover and analyze rich and interesting writing artifacts. Here you will find the complete set of childrenâ€™s writing and drawing samples from the Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Grade 1 sites discussed in the text, along with detailed description and narrative.
- Analysis of Childrenâ€™s Writing Samplesâ€”Here you can explore how studentsâ€™ writing from the Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Grade 1 sites discussed in the text can be further analyzed and assessed.
- Writerâ€™s Workshopâ€”In this section, youâ€™ll find useful materials for guiding a Writersâ€™ Workshop in your own classroom.
- Downloadable Templates and Checklistsâ€”This portion of the website offers a wealth of additional resources and templates youâ€™ll find useful in your teaching.
Used alongside the book, this website will support your efforts to give writing a prominent place in childrenâ€™s literacy development. Taking that journey toward a writing-reading classroom will be more enjoyable with companions, so be sure to collaborate with others to discuss and implement ideas. Have fun helping our youngest learners grow as writers and readers!
