Here at Writing Elite, we are strong advocates of family literacy, and getting families reading together because of the impact it not only has on the individual reader; but also the family as a whole. The next best expression of that is actually writing. Through writing, we have the opportunity to add to what we and others read with our own ideas, observations, and imagination.
It gets even better for parents in that even early readers can be introduced to writing, don’t expect them to be writers prior to preschool. Young children’s exposure to reading and writing sparks their curiosity and imagination which has more rewarding results for their later school years.
Here are 5 things you can do to advance early composition:
- Give kids composing apparatuses and urge them to utilize them. The littler the hand, the greater the device. For little children, walkway chalk is incredible. Yet, when children can grasp a fat pen or pencil, show them how to hold it effectively.
- Have children watch you when you write. Children not just need to satisfy grown-ups, they need to be grown-ups or “enormous children”. Seeing that you compose will normally cause them to feel that composing is a “major child” thing. Keep in mind, that when you read quietly, children may not realize you are perusing. Yet, when they see you compose, they know precisely what you’re doing.
- Have children compose the alphabets in order once per day. Regardless of whether they can just frame a couple of the letters, have them compose those. Focus on the lowercase letters. Over 95% of the letters we experience in print are lowercase. Lowercase letters additionally take more time to learn, so kids need more opportunities to learn them.
- Have your children express “cards to say thanks” when they get blessings. It’s a superb propensity for children to create, and it gives them a genuine motivation to keep in touch with a genuine individual. Additionally, utilizing a large number of similar words again and again (like “thank you” and “I truly like… “) will assist kids with improving both their system and certainty—regardless of whether you illuminate a few or the entirety of the words for them.
- Have children copy out their preferred stories from books. Children can make their books, either as copies of books they love or as unique manifestations of their own. Numerous children make their whole libraries. You can compose a book, as well. Offer to make a book before your youngster. At the point when children see you overlay the paper up effectively, number the pages, and make a pretty spread, it once in a while feels to them that you’ve accomplished something enchanted—and that they can do enchantment, as well!
