TR 20. Forms of Writing and Rereading From Writing: A Preliminary Report

By June Barnhart, Joyce Hieshima, Elizabeth Sulzby

Summary: The authors report on a study of young children's use of five emergent forms of writing-- scribble, drawing, non-phonetic letter strings, phonetic or invented spelling, and conventional orthography. Describing developmental patterns of writing and rereading from writing found among kindergarten children, the authors discuss ways that children build a repertoire of useful linguistic tools using these five forms. July, 1989; 34 pages.
