Gillispie “Gem” of the Week









In preschool Room 3, Ellison S. and Maia S. work with magnetic writing boards to create letters, shapes, and numbers with small lines and small curves as well as the magnetic writing tool attached to the board. Maia and Ms. Thompson watch as Ellison writes a three, “her [special] number.” This playful activity represents early exposure to the Handwriting Without Tears program Gillispie uses in prekindergarten through Grade 3. Behind them, Preston D. and Sebastiaan C.A. sort and stack the light builders by shape and color.
