Gail Says: To plan for writing for a whole Target children should be seen every day. Identify what your target children need. Give them what they need - this may mean that they do not do what the rest of the chn do. Even if you need to take them back to lower levels. So they leave HNP being able to write. We need to ensure these children get what they need. Many of your groupings will be fluid. Writing is not done like a reading rotation.
