Clip to ScrapBook #3

Nellie Edge (dot com) has a wonderful "name ticket" routine that she speaks highly of. I'm really considering starting it this year. She says getting kids to correctly write their name (correct letter formation) is an extremely important building block to getting them be able to learn to form the rest of the letters correctly...which leads to fluent writing. (Kids will do better with writing workshop!)

She gets the parents (as partners!) involved immediately by having them help their child practice writing their name twice nightly.

I just love Nellie's approach to all things literacy. Excellent FREE resources on her website and resources to purchase that are WORTH EVERY PENNY.
