The word write with three cartoon kids

Dear GES Families:

I have heard that some of our learners are having a hard time with writing. Here are some tips to help encourage your young writers.  During this special time at home, provide time and fun materials for writing. This may include smelly markers, fat pencils and paper of all shapes and sizes. Encourage your child to draw and/or write, and then use this time to talk about what's been created. Use words like, “Tell me what is happening in this picture”, WOW, that is great, can you tell me more?” Early efforts will probably be readable only by your child, but let your child feel like the expert with that piece of writing. A child's name and simple words like Mom, Dad and love are often used in their writing. If your child is older, asking them questions about their topic and listening to them, helps them to think about their writing. Regardless of what's been written, be proud of the work and display it for all to see.  We want them to think of themselves as independent writers.
