Ready to Read: Writing

Children can learn pre-reading skills through writing. Both reading and writing represent spoken language and communicate information. 
  • Writing begins with scribbles and marks. Give your children many opportunities to draw and write. Keep crayons, markers, or magnetic letters within reach.
  • Children can “sign” their names to drawings.
  • Encourage babies to grip toys, which helps build their hand muscles so they can write later on.
  • Talk to your children about what they draw, and write captions or stories together.
