How to teach child to write beautifully? I want my son to have good writing skills, because it will be difficult for him to complete all written tasks in college, and I don't want his GPA to be lower due to poor quality essay. Any tips?
I'm interested in this too. My daughter is left-handed and she has pretty funny writing. It's not bad, but it's not so clean and nice looking. I've searched for advice on different forums but I have yet to find something that really works, everything I've tried so far didn't change the situation. I got her some great worksheets from 99worksheets.com to make her more interested in drawing and contouring, and she's pretty interested at the moment, but we'll see how this goes. If you have any tips or methods to share, I'll appreciate it.
Most parents, at one point or another, frets over the education and the development of their children. Many concerned parents research and seek information on the topic of teaching children to read and write. I for one, am glad to see so many parents wanting to get an early start for their children in reading and writing, because studies have shown that developing these abilities early on before entering school provides numerous benefits and advantages later on as the child progresses through school.
More worrisome should be the fact that over one third, 38% to be exact, of all grade 4 students cannot even achieve a basic level of reading ability according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). This is an alarming statistic. Will your child become one of the 38% who cannot reach basic reading achievement by grade 4? For most children, this poor ability to read can be easily prevented with early phonemic awareness teaching.
Reading must begin early in the life of a child, whether it is just an alphabet letter, a word, a sentence, a paragraph, or a story. Teaching children how to read must begin early on, and children should be exposed to books, stories, rhymes, and be read to on a daily basis. Children as young as 2 years old can learn to read if you teach them to read with the proper instructions.
