What does writing look like in kindergarten?

Effective writing curriculums at the kindergarten level provide scaffolding, vocabulary enrichment, mastery of letter-sound relationships, development of voice, and understanding of writing as a process (Graves, 1983). "Writing instruction needs to help students meet the challenges of writing effectively for many purposes" (NCTE, 2008).

This means that writing instruction in kindergarten is more than handwriting, copying, or fill-in the blank!
