Different Forms of Writing Spark Creativity

Preschool Projector Drawings_1By Renee Hennessy, Preschool Director

In our classrooms we introduce many different forms of writing to our preschooler, including story books, information books, magazines, recipes, and credible information from Internet sites such as PBS. These examples are the kinds of writing that our children and teachers are reading together to aid in learning about the topics we are teaching. We then often see our students act out their favorite story, draw pictures of a story they have created, and use materials such as clay and Play-Doh to represent their ideas.     

Here are a few spring books we recommend:

  • What Makes a Rainbow? by Betty Ann Schwartz
  • When Will It Be Spring? by Catherine Walters
  • Grow, Flower, Grow by Lisa Bruce
  • The Lamb and The Butterfly by Arnold Sundgaard
  • Inch by Inch: The Garden Song by David Mallett
  • Wait by Antoinette Portis
  • Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert

Don’t forget that Summer Camp registration is live on our website. Click here for more information.
