“I found Mrs. Rai’s workshop full of easily applicable activities that I could immediately incorporate into my dayplan. She has a wonderful presenting style that included many examples of her students’ writing progress and video clips of sample lessons. I have used her ideas since 2008 and my students have become happy, confident, successful writers! Thank-you Mrs. Rai for great ideas that had a great impact on my student’s writing.”

“It was fascinating to see how creative writing could be for the kindergarteners...by providing foamies and stickers to personalise their work, they really got to task. Wall stories and related word walls are just the way to go in providing the children with support with early writing skills. I enjoyed learning the systematic approach to writing during the kindergarten year. Thank you Rapinder.”

“Rapinder’s workshop on Writing in Kindergarten was both inspiring and enlightening. As a beginning teacher, I appreciated the use of student samples and video clips in her presentation outlining the different strategies that can be used to support young, emergent writers. Rapinder gave practical ideas to incorporate writing into student activities throughout the school day. I was able to immediately employ these ideas in my classroom.”
