Did you know that writing enhances reading skills?  It's true!  Children can use knowledge, skills, and strategies for both reading and writing.  It's called a reciprocal process.  Here are some things you can do at home to encourage your child to write:


1.   Allow your child to help you write the grocery list.

2.   Write a letter to a friend or relative.

3.   Use a creative prompt such as:

Pretend our family is going on a trip.  Where would we go?  What would we do?  What would we see?  Write a story about our family trip.
