The student independently chose to use writing in the student’s play. The student understood the purpose of the writing (“I’m going to write a list of supplies for the doctor’s office”). The student knew which kind of writing paper was needed to complete the task (“I’m going to get list paper”). The student was able to name the type of writing used (“I wrote a list”). How does play support the student’s understanding of the purpose of writing? How does the arrangement of the writing materials or anchor charts support the student’s proficiency with the task?
