The Center for Early Literacy Learning has published several hand out on scribbling and writing tips for young children, infants through preschool. Each tip sheet has some good ideas although encouraging a child to mark, scribble or write when they are not developmentally ready may not always be beneficial. It is my opinion that children should be exploring kinesthetic and multi-sensory play instead of "writing practice". What do you think about these tip sheets - too much too young or just right?
