Literacy has so many components. As mentioned in the past, many of them can be reinforced informally. However, I do like to plan activities specifically for the different components as well, to make sure that I'm covering a bit of everything.
One activity we are doing first thing, during our summer program, is a journal. This journal topic is only one word and is related to the story or book that will be used that morning. Makes it a very easy way to transition to the next activity. I use a one word topic to allow for a wide variety of responses. Children are invited to share their journal but if they don't wish to, that is fine also. There are many types of paper available on the Internet. For fives and younger, I do recommend just blank paper with no lines at first. After they are more confident with their writing, then move onto only one line at the bottom of the paper. Our Kindergarten teacher also starts with blank or one line depending on the development of the child. Then she moves onto lined penmanship paper. http://www.printablepaper.net has SO many different types of paper templates, free to print. That is where I printed off the penmanship paper with the lower line highlighted blue.
