Writing is one of the most important life skills. It’s essential in everything you do and everything you learn. That’s why we should make sure our children are able to write competently and express themselves eloquently. Here are some ways to help children learn:
- Encourage them to write a blog. So many people enjoy this as a pastime nowadays and it can be an engaging activity for a child. When it comes to college and university applications, it will help to show that they have interests outside of school.
- Play educational games with them. These could be anything from boards games to online games, as long as it gets them thinking about and experimenting with language.
- Read with them. One of the best ways to become a good writer is to read as much writing as you can. Novels, poetry, magazines, online content – it can all be educational.
- Enter competitions with them. Get children to use their creative skills and write in a competitive environment. This will encourage them to have high ambitions and aspirations when it comes to their writing.
