PURPOSE: to characterize and analyze the speech-language point o view, literacy (ies), the modes of movement and use of discursive genres written by 69 students from two classes of the third stage of an elementary public school for children of São Paulo. METHOD: the construction and application protocol consists of several written genres for checking the degree of recognition, familiarity and usage by 69 schoolchildren. The age of the students was 5 years and 1 month to 6 years and 1 month, 58% male and 42% female gender. Data analysis was performed from the mapping of the students' literacy rates depending on the levels and types of literacy reflected in the literature. RESULTS: among the written statements genres, we found, for this age group, a significant recognition for the genre: letter; journalistic narratives for children, traffic signs, cartoons and recipes, which are viewed and / or used by and / or relatives at home, on the way to school and other social ambiences. CONCLUSION: there is considerable presence of literacy practices among those surveyed, which suggests the relevance of considering the processes of literacy in both the pedagogical strategies of early childhood education, and in speech therapy with students who have difficulties and / or disturbances in the acquisition of writing.
