I have a word wall where we are putting up environmental print that the kids find--cut out "Wal-mart" under W, "McDonalds" under M, and all the children's name under their letter. We also put up a picture and the word of whatever we are studying on our word wall-right now pumpkins, spiders, webs, etc. I'm making a writing center and creating strips with words the children may attempt to spell--the children's names, happy birthday, get well soon, I love you. There is also paper and old cards for the children to practice their writing. Any ideas about introducing letters that is not "letter of the week"? I really hate how that approach breaks up the alphabet. I would like a more holistic approach. Anyone suggest some good resource books for me to read for ideas? I want it to be fun and natural--I teach mostly four-year-olds. Thanks!
