Reflection: Unit Planning You Can Quote Me - Section 2: Procedure


When I have told colleagues that I am teaching a unit on punctuation, I usually get jaw-dropping stares.  They are amazed at the way kindergarten has changed.  I explain that we are dealing with more literacy skills, and punctuation is one of those skills.  Fortunately, we are sane enough to realize that this is not meant to be mastery of the skills but rather an introduction of the skills, since there are children who are not yet reading.  For those children that are reading, this is a step in the right direction.
