Top Ways To Help Improve A Young Child's Writing Skills

If you have a young child, it doesn’t matter whether you home-school him or he goes to a local school each day. You will undoubtedly want him to have a good education, and he'll likely be better at some subjects than others.

Written language skills can often be challenging for young kids, and you might be here today because your child is struggling to develop his writing skills. There’s no denying that writing is an important part of communication - and it’s a skill everyone uses each day.

It does take time to develop strong writing skills. If your child is struggling more than most with his command of the written word, there are some steps you can take to help him overcome those challenges. Take a look at the following inspirational ideas:

Encourage Your Child To Read Lots Of Books

Children prefer to play computer games, go outdoors to play with their friends, or engage in a variety of other activities in their spare time. One activity you could encourage your child to do when she's not at school is to read books.

Reading lots of books regularly will help your child in several ways. Firstly, it will expand her vocabulary and show her different ways to use words, and secondly, she will better understand how to use words in other contexts.

Lastly, reading will bolster her writing skills. Make sure that you’re reading books together and read at a pace that’s comfortable for her.

Hire An English Tutor

Another idea might be to hire an English tutor. It doesn’t matter whether English is your child’s first or second language; hiring an English tutor that works with children the same age as yours can be the perfect accompaniment to his regular schooling.

Most English tutors can teach written language skills over the Internet using tools such as shared desktops. It’s both an immersive and interactive learning experience that children will enjoy.

Plus, a tutor will dedicate all the lesson time to your child instead of sharing it with other kids. It’s worth looking into hiring an English tutor as it can often make a massive difference to a child’s written language development.

Make Learning Fun

Let’s face it: learning is not always fun and, frankly, teachers and parents really shouldn't be under so much pressure to always make it fun. Honestly, some degree of occasional boredom is good for children. However, making many learning experiences fun for your child will help instill within her a love for learning which will stretch across all learning areas, including practicing good written language skills.

One idea is to provide your children with crossword puzzles or even an interactive game to play where they must write the answers to questions before they can progress to the next level of a game.

Have Your Child Write Letters

This is one of my favorite ways to help children improve writing skills.

Before the days of smartphones and the Internet, children would often write letters to their distant friends and relatives. One final idea for improving your child’s written skills is by having them write letters to people they know.

It’s fun and they have full creative control over what they write. They could also include some drawings in their letters.
