Teach Your Children to Write Tips to Help You Teach Your Children How to Write

Updated on September 2, 2014

As a parent we are always trying to teach our kids new things one of the most difficult things to teach your kids is how to write. I know that for me one of the biggest challenges that I have of teaching my children is how to write. I know that my daughter really loves to write and draw even if it is just little squiggly lines across the etch and sketch that she has. So here are some of the ways that I have found to help teach her how to write.


Dry Erase Boards Can Be Used To Help Children Write

The first thing that I did to help her learn to write prior to pre-school is that I purchased some of the dry erase boards that have the letters already written on them before she even started. Then I would start with some of the simple letters that she could already draw the shape for. So if she was able to draw a circle which she could do fairly easily I started teaching her how to write the letter O before I even started thinking about the other letters that I could teach her. Then after she mastered that letter I would move on to letters that share the same shape so the next letter was capital C.


Encouragement Even When Mistakes Are Made In Writing

The second thing that I did to help my daughter learn to write was encouraged her to write. I know that I provided many tools that she could use to learn to write. I know that I have etch and sketches that helped her because they are easy to clean and erase on her own. Then I provided many of the dry erase style of books that would allow her to copy letters that were in the book that was also included with the dry erase board style book so she was able to see the letters and then copy them directly from what they had on the book. Then I knew that she would want to write with a pen or crayon as well so I purchased plenty of blank white papers. Since she was just learning how to write the letters I wasn’t concerned about the size of the letter at that time, but now that she is gaining more experience I am starting to get lined paper for her to write on so she can learn how to write her letters to the size.


Teaching Children to Write Is Important

While teaching your children to write is important it can also be one of the more frustrating things that you can do. I know that for my daughter she would get frustrated a lot, but once she learned how to write now all that she wants to do is write which I am sure your kids will be the same way. When your kids start to get to be the same way you will start to go crazy, but even then you will enjoy seeing them learn more than just the writing, which is a starting gateway.

      I totally agree! Sometimes we expects out kids to pick these skills up naturally, when we need to make it interesting and relvant to them.
