    We invite you to create a discussion among teachers, researchers, parents, principals, policymakers and journalists. What are your comments about Dr. Rowe's insights?

    I've watched my grandson develop his literacy skills (he's 5 years old as of yesterday!). We've always read to him and offered pencils and markers and crayons and chalk for him to write with. My husband, his grandpa, will sometimes leave notes stuck upright in my computer keyboard. Andrew saw one, asked what it was, and I told him that sometimes Grandpa leaves me a note to say I love you. I left the room for a few minutes and when I returned, I had to giggle when I found Andrew had replaced his grandpa's note with his own. Although I couldn't read Andrew's "scribble", I definitely "read" his message! Kids know so much, can do so much. Instead of looking for conventionally formed letters, or asking them to parrot the ABC song in order for us to know they are "smart" enough, maybe we need to do more modeling and talking and listening to them.

    Thanks.I put a link to this podcast to my course blogs for my literacy methods courses (undergrad). This ties in nicely with our topic of emergent literacy and making sense of students' development for future EC-4 level teachers. Makes me think of Marie Clay's text "What Did I Write?"
