Plastic Writing Mats define a students writing space on a table just like a rug does for floor work. Students get their writing mat, writing tool and tracer sheet. They usually choose one sheet at a time. The four year olds really like to do 4 sheets. Often they choose their name, a pattern, a number and letter writing sheet. They choose 2 pieces of paper from the book paper box and make a book stapled together. Some illustrate the cover. Some do not.
