Knowledge and Skills Statement

Developing and sustaining foundational language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking--beginning reading and writing. The student develops word structure knowledge through phonological awareness, print concepts, phonics, and morphology to communicate, decode, and spell.

Mientras los estudiantes están en los centros de aprendizaje, involúcrese en la actividad y pregúnteles acerca de las letras con las que estén interactuando (Por ej. ¿Pueden decirme qué letra es esta?).

Puede usar una lista de control para darle seguimiento a las letras que cada estudiante puede identificar (mayúsculas y minúsculas).

Notas:

  • Será importante tener materiales impresos y escritos en cada centro para permitir que se realice una verdadera evaluación.
  • Ésta es una evaluación que debería hacerse a lo largo del tiempo utilizando una lista de control. El maestro no debería evaluar todas las letras mayúsculas y minúsculas en una sola sesión.
Print awareness is the understanding of the characteristics and uses of print including the following print concepts: Printed text conveys meaning, sentences are comprised of words separated by spaces, and texts have unique print features that influence meaning.
