How can I help my children learn to write?

Let your children watch you when you:

  • Fill in forms.
  • Write letters.
  • Write cards.
  • Make notes.
  • Pay bills.
  • Write shopping lists.

What materials do I need to encourage writing at home:

  • Lots of paper.
  • Pens, pencils, crayons.
  • Scissors and glue.
  • Old envelopes or greeting cards to copy.
  • Blank books for children to make their own stories.
  • A box to keep all the materials in.
