Helping children learn about the sounds in words (phonemic awareness) through language play, games, rhymes, and rhythmic activities.

Giving children regular opportunities to express themselves on paper (drawing and writing) without demanding “correct” spelling and proper handwriting. (Pinnell & Fountas, 2011, pp. 25-26).
