In a Montessori classroom, there should be many opportunities for spontaneous writing! Here a child was so excited about her nail polish, she wanted to write it down and draw a picture!
She rolled out a rug, got the moveable alphabet and sounded out the words! She then traced her hand and had her story. These opportunities help her to understand how to sound out words, how to write a story and that she has something to say. She was quite proud of herself and couldn't wait to take it home and show her mom!
