LANGUAGE –  THE ORIGIN OF WRITTEN LANGUAGEWritten language came about because of the need to communicate something without using thevoice, or to let someone know why someone was away from home.The first written message was found near the Great Lakes in the U.S.
Show C charts of messages & symbols
After showing the charts of messages & symbols to C ask C if they think it’ s easier touse the drawings or the symbols we have in the alphabet box.
How many signs & symbols do you think it would take to write a message?
With just these few symbols we can write any word we would like to write.  Look at allthe books in this classroom & imagine all the words.
When you know these symbols & learn how to put them together you can write too, & evenwrite books if you want to.We should be grateful to the men who labored to give us these symbols.  Who were thesepeople?  They were the Phoenicians.  They lived along the Mediterranean coast near Italy.  Theywere merchants who didn’ t have a specific country, instead they established beautiful citiesalong the coast.  They exchanged their products with other people & were great merchants.  Theyneeded to communicate quickly & didn’ t have time to write pictures.
