Summary "Taking an exciting, new approach to working with our youngest students, Already Ready shows you how, by respecting children as writers engaged in bookmaking, you can gently nudge them toward a lifetime of joyful writing. Katie Wood Ray and Matt Glover guide you through fundamental concepts of early writing. Providing numerous, helpful examples of early writing - complete with transcriptions-they demonstrate how to: make sense of children's writing and interpret how they; represent sounds, ideas, and images; see important developmental signs in writers that you can use to help them grow further; and recognize the thinking young children engage in and discover that it's the same thinking more experienced writers use to craft purposeful, thoughtful pieces."--Jacket.
