The other day during Writing Workshop, I was conferencing with a scholar and he wanted to know how to write 'watermelon'. I said, "Let your mouth tell your hand what to write." To which he replied, "w-w-w...I don't know what letter but I know it's like 'wagon' on that ABC app we use."
What a smart little scholar!!!
I had introduced the app ABC Magic to the class to build letter/sound connections.
