Writing skills have become an important part of everyone's life. Therefore, it is necessary to indulge the children in different writing activities every day to develop their writing skills!
Here are seven ways in which you can help your child develop an everyday writing routine:
- The Powerful Imagination – Make your child imagine out of the world things. It can be anything, even a chocolate-themed park! Once they start imagining, tell them to write the image down. Gradually, they will begin to write on their own, without you asking for it!
- The Story Game – You tell stories to your children whenever they ask for them. In the same way, you also ask them to tell you a story. Soon, your child's brain will overflow with stories, and they will write some of it down to remember it.
- Emphasize vocabulary too – Children love to play games like scrabble, crosswords, jumble-unjumble, etc. Use these games to increase the vocabulary skills of your child!
- Write yourself – Children tend to copy everything that their elders do. If they see you writing with interest, they will copy it too! You can also write in a diary a short paragraph if you don't have much time.
- Boost confidence – Whatever your child writes, appreciate and encourage it. They may still be young to handle negative criticism. Or you can write to them. E.g., shopping list, things to do, etc.
- The old-fashioned way – In the older times, people used to have good writing skills as they wrote almost daily. Not being a digital era had its perks! Make your child write compliments, letters, or short messages to your relatives or friends. It will also help them distinguish between formal writing and informal writing.
- Last but not least, BE PATIENT – I know it takes much time for all of this. So you need to be patient with your child if they are facing trouble. Remember to praise, respond, help with spellings, and practice! After all, not everyone is born with these skills!
