In our classrooms, we have a lot of independent work. Sometimes more than we’d like (#staffproblems). But there is definitely a lot of good that can come from a healthy dose of independent work. It’s such an essentially important skill to be able to work on your own. The other added value is that you can grab that opportunity to practice previously mastered skills as well as give exposure to foundational concepts. For your emergent literacy learners, make sure their task boxes, independent binders, and homework are filled with alphabet practice. Whether you are just practicing matching letters, matching upper to lower case, filling in missing letters, ordering the alphabet, or sorting by sound – there is so much helpful and beneficial practice that your students can engage in.
