A wide spectrum of research on preschool spelling development in different languages is presented. In Poland, children at kindergarten are usually at a stage of pre-literacy. Invented spelling means the writing produced by young children (aged 3–7 years) before they are formally taught reading and writing or are at the beginning of the learning process. Their writing is more spontaneous than learned. The paper describes investigations on the development of early literacy and factors influencing it, such as knowledge about orthographic (spelling) patterns, early morphological awareness or teaching methods. Children’s early writing provides a window on their conceptualisation of the written language, illustrating the process of rising language awareness and spelling skills. Invented spelling is considered, together with phonological abilities and letter knowledge, as a strong predictor of later literacy skills.
