Chalk Talk: Why Children Should Write
Writing is an essential component in a well-rounded education. It also helps prepare students for life beyond the classroom. Writing has many benefits, and children should be encouraged to write as much as possible. Writing helps to improve communication skills. The more a student writes, the more comfortable they becomes with expressing ideas. Writing is a great way to increase memorization. Whether they write about what they have learned, or apply new knowledge, by putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboards), information becomes more ingrained in a student’s memory. Writing also helps to foster creativity. When students are given the opportunity to create poems, stories, plays and reactionary papers, they stretch their creative wings and soar beyond the information presented to them.
