Emergent or copy write?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I have done both.

Providing you are teaching the children the phonic skills they need, you should be able to encourage emergent writing very successfully.

I would not provide the children with copy writing as a written exercise but I would provide opportunities for them to have access to plenty of resources and word banks etc so that they can copy write. I have had children keen to copy lists of classmates names etc.

In England, FS1 is the nursery/pre school year and FS2 reception class.

I think this is different in other parts of the UK

Thunks Mundia...one of those labels that is often used by schools but not explained ! Where did this label come from? i cant seem to find reference to it .

.....had an odd conversation recently about it.....i think thats where the confusion arose! thanks for clearing it up.

I think it depends what your objectives are. If I am teaching handwriting then I might use copy writing to start with, to model how to write the letters correctly. However if my learning objective is making marks / using letters to communicate meaning then I would encourage the children to write emergently, supporting them with finding letters on letter mats, if they could hear a particular sound, but wanted to know what it looked like.

Hope that helps x

From the days when the Foundation Stage was the term used to describe children aged 3+ in nursery and Reception in schools. Foundation stage 1 was nursery and 2 reception. It came from the "curriculum guidance for the foundation stage" 2000, which came after the Desirable Learning Outcomes.
