Writing with Kindergarteners

I think this bulletin board shows a great example of writing with kindergartners. They have each drawn a picture and then dictated (I am assuming the dictation part) a sentence about their picture. They have glued the words in the sentence separately which is a great way to teach spacing between words. A friend of mine told me that is a Reading Recovery strategy (which is a program that I am unfortunately pretty ignorant). Look at the student samples below.
