Children learn about writing by observing people who already know how and by participating with those people in simple writing experiences.
Parents and older siblings serve as models for children, showing what writers do.
Kids are more likely to want to communicate in writing if they grow up in a home where they often see people writing.
The more they see you riding, the more inclined they are to want to write
As children begin writing, they may use drawing, scribbling, or invented letters and spellings to express themselves. These are legitimate forms of Early writing and should be encouraged.
Share your writing tasks with children. For example, include your child when you write out the weekly grocery list or jot down a reminder to yourself or another family member. And let the child to help you with writing party invitations, thank you notes, and cards or letters to relatives and friends.
When you have writing to do – even something as humdrum as your to do list – try to get in the habit of doing them when your child is around. Before you know it, you’ll have an eager writer on your hands .
