Readers are writers and writers are readers.
Your child might enjoy having their own journal and just writing. A notebook and pen or pencil is all they need. This writing can begin in kindergarten.
Here are some suggestions:
- Date every entry.
- Keep (and re-read) what you write.
- Write quickly.
- Start writing; keep writing.
- Tell yourself the truth.
- Write naturally what you’re thinking.
The main thing is just to get writing and enjoy writing. These simple beginning writings can unlock a love for writing.
