Beginning

Let’s see beginning through your lens! (Weekly Photo Challenge)

As a kindergarten teacher for more than a decade, I got to see many students’ early attempts at writing. The way five- and six-year-olds use sound-letter correspondence, express their ideas and knowledge, and write with no concern of being judged was always inspiring.

I hope you enjoy these writing samples, which show how empowering literacy is and the beginning of the understanding of this: What I think, I can say; what I say, I can write; what I write can be read by others.
