Montessori Elementary - Writing Process

The children at any level follow the same process from beginning to end of their writing, but the depth will vary dependent on their ages and experience.

The language album does not specific an explicit writing process, but recently I had the opportunity to put together an outline for my son that indeed covers every situation and is perfectly in line with Montessori:
  1. get your ideas down on paper (wide variety of options - notecards, bubbles, lists, etc.)
  2. organize those ideas under main headings
  3. consider any other headings that should be included (look at "audience requirements") - edit as needed
  4. physically organize all these ideas in order, and begin writing on paper with complete sentences.
  5. Edit from there as needed.
