Writing

KindergartenWritingReading and writing go together. Both represent spoken language, and help your preschooler to learn to communicate information. Children can learn pre-reading skills through writing activities, and they can start to understand that writing is about telling a story.

What you can do now-
  • Encourage writing by providing opportunities for your child to draw and pretend-write.
  • Have paper and crayons within reach.
  • Show your child how to write his or her name.
  • Write captions for the drawings that your child makes, so that he or she can see the connection between pictures, print, and spoken language.
