How can I help my child in Writing?

  • Encourage opportunities for writing such as letters to family or friends, shopping lists, notes or reminders, stories and poems.
  • Write together – be a good role model for writing.
  • Encourage use of a dictionary to check spelling and a thesaurus to find synonyms and expand vocabulary.
  • Allow your child to use a computer for word processing, which will allow for editing and correcting of errors without lots of crossing out.
  • Remember that good readers become good writers! Identify good writing features when reading (e.g. vocabulary, sentence structure and punctuation).
  • Show your appreciation: praise and encourage, even for small successes!
