The Nellie Edge Newsletter will be taking a two-week break for the holidays and will resume on January 5th.
Blogs that honor childhood and remind us why we love to teach
My colleagues and I are passionate about teaching young writers. We blog about our own action-research documentation because we want you to see what is happening in REAL kindergartens with exemplary writing instruction.
In these writing workshop classrooms, we:
- raised our expectations,
- used authentic, multisensory teaching and learning strategies
- provided systematic encoding practice
- built circles of writing mastery with "heart word" sentences
- invited students to write and draw all day long—across the curriculum.
These writing strategies are transformative!
I care about excellence in kindergarten literacy, and I want each blog to convey the best, most concise message, so I labor over the words. I hope they inspire your teaching journey! Remember: As we challenge ourselves to become better teachers of writing, we will watch our kindergartners become even better writers year after year.

"This bundle gave my kinders the scaffolding and confidence to truly become writers.
The ideas are simple yet profound; this product should be required in every kinder classroom."
