The Purpose of Writing

Young children need to learn about the many uses of writing and you can help them by giving them opportunities to compose things to be written down by you.  They might help you think of things to add to the shopping list, leave a note for dad or dictate a story to you.  Here’s a fun idea for summer:  Ask your child dictate a summer bucket list of places he or she wants to visit and things they want to do. Keep the list on the fridg and then cross off completed activities.  Other summer fun learning ideas
