I know we have been talking about prewriting a lot lately, but here is just one more little thing we did the other day before we attempt making a cross. I have this amazing easel that I love and I added some stickers to the bottom and sides. I know I will have to do a little work to get them off, but that is OK.
First we made lines "down to the cat" then "down to the doggie". Adeline loved this and it really helped her to focus on making a complete line. We then made lines horizontally to the cats and dogs.
This was a fun simple writing activity.
