Empowering Children at Sign In Time
When children enter the classroom in the morning, they have many responsibilities to help empower them and foster independence and sense of self. One way of doing this is to ask children to 'sign in'. Not only is it daily name writing practice, it's a great way to help children see themselves as capable readers and writers, as they figure out the question or problem of the day and response to it. Lately we've been asking the children to author the question of the day. Some are even eager to help us write it!
We love any chance we can get to empower children's literacy and help them see themselves as capable readers, writers, and communicators!
