Create an Alphabet Book together. In this activity, your child will not only create a memorable book but will also practice writing letters, recognizing beginning sounds, and learning uppercase and lowercase letters.
Children at this age will write more frequently, and they also will begin to understand letter-sound connections. Help your child learn more about words by creating a Name Dictionary. This activity may take several weeks.
Comic strips often have appeal for children, even before they learn to read. The animation and fun characters bring out the best in imagination, and the short, simple stories are easy to understand. Use comic strips to encourage your child’s creativity.
Children at this age love to talk about themselves. Keeping a journal is one way to tap into your child’s world and special interests. Making writing a part of your child’s daily routine builds an important foundation for later writing needed for school.
