describes the principles that Clay (1975) associates with pre-kindergarten aged children:
- The Recurring Principle
- The Direction Principle
- The Inventory Principle
- The Contrastive Principle
For this discussion post, select an example of a young child’s writing (age 3-5). If possible, use a child’s writing sample from your own work with children (take a photo of the work). If this is not feasible, perform a search for a “pre-kindergarten writing sample” and you will find numerous samples that can serve as the basis for this assignment. Respond to the following:
- Analyze the writing sample. Which of Clay’s principles are evident in the sample? Explain.
- What insights does this writing sample offer into the child’s "awareness" of writing?
- Include the sample the child’s "writing" in your post as an attachment
Support your statements with evidence from the required studies and your research.
