Question:

Why is it important to teach the writing process?

Answer:

The writing process needs to be an ongoing "lesson" within all classrooms. The purpose should not be to focus on the finished product, but the actual process used to help a writer get their ideas organized for a specific audience and/or purpose. Students need to feel they are allowed to take risks in their writing and be given the time to develop their ideas over time with the idea that input can be gathered from their peers to improve their writing piece. I think the components of the writing process, brainstorming, planning, drafting, revising, and getting input from others help young and seasoned writers develop a finished product that can/should be shared/celebrated in the classroom.

Answer:

One way to support understanding of literature in the classroom is through shared reading experiences. Shared reading allows the teacher to model fluency and expression, demonstrate comprehension strategies as well as expand students' vocabulary. Shared reading should be seen as a strong component in not only the early grades but in classrooms of all levels.

Answer:

An excellent Early Childhood Education starts with an outstanding teacher able to guide the children in their curiosity and discovery through play-based experiences where each child can learn through purposeful play. Children should experience a nurturing environment where they are cognitively enriched. The early childhood educational experience should lay the foundation of skills to support continued learning throughout a child's school experience.
