Chalk Talk: Helping Student's Become Writers
In addition to reading and mathematics, writing is also an extremely important skill that needs to be developed when children are young. Even though computers have made writing assignments for high school and college easier, children still must learn grammar, spelling, and punctuation rules. Journaling is an easy, creative plan to help your child improve his/her writing skills. Allow your child to choose a notebook they like, and get one for yourself in the process. Set up times to sit down and write together. Both you and your child will get a lot out of the shared experience.
