Learning to Write - It IS Rocket Science!

With all the attention on high tech these days, I was happily surprised by a low-tech moment I had when I was doing an observation in a preschool. After a few minutes of taking notes, I sensed a number of 4-year-olds clustered around me, curious about what I had in my hands. All I had was a pencil and an ordinary notebook of lined paper with my handwritten notes. I told them that I like to learn about children, and I showed them how I write down things they say and do, so I can remember.
