Writing is a very important part of children’s learning as they progress through elementary school. As your child begins to master the basics to begin writing their name correctly, it is a good idea to hone fine motor skills while practicing both upper and lower case letters, even learning to spell some basic words. And the saying is already saying … ‘ check this link here where you can learn to write’. Today, there are many tests that children must pass in school and it seems that it is even more important than ever that parents emphasize the need for children to develop good skills to express themselves clearly and expressively. Here I am going to explain some fun activities you can do to encourage your children to develop good writing skills and habits that will last a lifetime. Journaling will not only be good for your child, but it will also help him understand the importance of writing. Choose a notebook that is special to your child and that uses it as a journal. Every night before bed, you can make it a routine for your child to write a sentence or two about his day. It can be something general like: ‘Today has been a fun day’ or maybe, you can highlight something that you really like or a thought that you have had either happy or sadder, such as: ‘I laughed when my brother tickled me ‘. As your child grows, he will begin to write down more things about his feelings and concerns. Journaling can be a great way to deal with stress and anxiety. Writing helps you feel better.
