    Astute teachers who understand pedagogy don't ignore spelling and grammar because they don't want to upset the child - they individualise student learning goals to develop the child's learning in a developmentally appropriate way. This doesn't mean it is ignored but in some children developed in another way - perhaps through word work, word investigation etc.. I would also say that this approach is more often taken with 'reluctant writers' (this is often boys and funnily enough can be gifted children too) and children in the early years.

    It's not about not upsetting it's about what's developmentally appropriate for individual kids.

    How unfair

    I'm only back 2 days a week and I have 24 in 1-2, I think for a P-2 grade that it's too many.

    Oh definitely- I cringe at the thought. But I can't do littlies- I thought I could until I had two days a week in there last year. Even with 14 in a P/1 it's put me off teaching the junior school for life!

    I actually feel the same way now - I forgot how different it is. They can be hard work! Gorgeous but hard work

    Default Spin Off: Not correcting every spelling mistake

    I am a teacher. In english i encourage my kids (yr 1) to circle words they have had a go with but aren't confident. Then at the end they need to look for 3 of those words on a word wall or their word spelling dictionaries. I Willard words but included. If its a word I know is on the wall or book I will circle it for them and encourage them to go and find it. I correct it in maths and other subjects if myself or parents wouldn't be able to read the word they have spelt. It depends on the child too.

    Another awesome approach IMO. It's so important for kids to have the skill to look at a word independently, apply word knowledge and ask themselves 'does it look right'.

    'You pick your battles!'

    I have 30 year 4 student (jealous of the class of 13 😜) and as you can imagine the range of abilities in my room is huge!
    During draft writing students are encouraged just to write! Get everything down.
    Then the skill of editing comes in. Being able to recognize where a full stop comes in. Recognizing when a word 'doesn't look right' and being able to have the skills to work it out or find it out is important.

    For all of students I would always assess on the content of the writing task first. Have the understood how to write an argument. How to write a procedure. Then move into the language used, punctuation and spelling.

    And I have 1 rule in my room. You can use your red pens to rule up, write the date and title. But no correcting in red by any means. For my struggling students I correct in pencil with them next to me. Red is so demoralizing.

    As a trained Reading Recovery teacher the children would write in colored markers and the teacher would use the same colour. That way if the child required help in their writing the work would be in the same colour. Having a positive effect on student well being.
