- Six small ways to support any child who struggles with writing without requiring him/her to sit down to physically write daily...
- Tell stories- oral storytelling is very important for young children. It is important to not only tell stories to your child but to also engage his/her in telling stories as well. Storytelling is fun to do while in the car, hiking, before bed, while eating, etc...
- Record your child's stories then read his/her words back. Afterwards, ask him/her if he/she used the most specific words? Help your child find one or two places that he/she could use more specific words and insert them.
- Make lists together- shopping lists, to do lists, guest lists, etc... You might find your child taking over the list writing!
- Reflect on outings through art and writing...sketch paintings and/or sculptures, draw a picture of what you learned, your favorite part, etc... Adult your child could right a reflection of the outing.
- Write cards and/or letters.
- Build on oral stories by writing them down - your child can write down a story that was told to him/her. Your child can say/sketch/write the story that was told to him/her or create a different version.
