In this first of a three-part video series, Joan and Daniel confer with Maria about the letters in her name. Names are important and unique, consequently many kindergartners come to school with a sense of urgency to be able to spell, write, and read their own names. The conference focuses on the letters and sounds in Maria's name and meets her zone of proximal development since she knows all the letters in her name except for one. Watch as Joan layers the conference with new learning and a look toward future teaching points.
