Confused Over Writing Elg

'Begin to break the flow of speech into words' - can anyone shed any light on what this actually means? It's in the writing section of CLL and my mind is just blank. What would this look like?

I think it means that a child recognises that spoken (and written) language can be broken down into separate "chunks" - words - and demonstrates that in their play, comments and conversations with people.

 

In the guidance, it says as an example "Dexter tells the practitioner a story at a pace she can write it down" next to that stepping stone, illustrating the point that he's making the connection between saying a single word and writing it down rather than seeing speech as a continuous flow. It's a precursor to starting to sound out words and thinking about initial sounds, etc. - the child needs to recognise that words are single units before being able to recognise the sounds/letters that make them up. The bit in the guidance about what the practitoner should do to encourgae this maybe makes it a bit clearer, e.g. acting as a scribe and saying each word seprately as you write it down.

 

I'm not sure if that makes sense, hope so! :o

Are you looking at the Framework Ariel as I think this can make it all very confusing. I stick to the FS guidance and find it much easier but I agree with Wolfie it is just them realising that spoken word can be represented by marks!
