DM Statement - writing

Recommended Posts

Just need to clarify ... ...

'Continues a rhyming string' (Writing)

A child can WRITE e.g. cat, mat, hat, rat - unsupported

'Continues a rhyming string' (Reading)

A child can continue a rhyming string during a play situation

 

'Hears and says initial sounds in words' (Writing)

A child can WRITE e.g. cat as he sounds out the word c-a-t

'Hears and says initial sounds in words' (Reading)

A child can suggest other words with the same initial sound

 

Apologies for asking such an 'obvious' ;) question!

We have interpreted these statements as your examples for reading only, not writing.

How do you interpret the writing statements?

'Continues a rhyming string' is a DM under writing!

Being able to continue a rhyming string is important for writing, but I don't think that writing them is relevant
for this stage and wouldn't expect it.
The recommended age to start systematic teaching of phonics is "usually, but not always, by the age of five"
in the EYFS. This is not at pre-school age, including reception for many children, as school age is five in England.

Do the rhyming strings apply to writing? And would you consider them relevant for pre-school aged children?

Yes, for some Autumn born children; I had several children born in September who were 58 months in July.

It's the same skill about the understanding of speech sounds which we use in both reading (blending) and spelling for writing (segmenting).

This is not about writing things down but about oral blending and segmenting and hearing sounds and being able to identify the individual sounds they hear in the order the occur or to replicate those sounds to generate words which sound the same (rhyming!)

 

I think you are over complicating it by trying to isolate the skills from the others described in the DM stage of development/researched stages of writing/reading development and make them a separate reading or writing thing!
