Developing the art of writing in a six year old

If we want we can make our kids write in various forms.

Story Writing- a typical six year old will really find this tough as he/she may fumble with the spellings. They might also get confused regarding what is actually expected from them.

Dictation & Copywork- This is fairly simple. In copywork they need to replicate the contents and using a good quality book will ensure that they develop excellent writing skills. Copywork is an excellent way to inculcate the art of reading while mastering the art of excellent handwriting. In fact copywork is excellent in mastering spellings. Dictation is the next logical step and is more advanced as compared to copywork.

Narration- the child has to recollect and explain the story in their own words. This forms the basis of Charlotte Mason technique and you can make six year olds narrate orally. As they grow older you can make them pen their narrations.

Spelling list- This is one technique which I am yet to try. I still stick to dictation while introducing new words to them. You will however move ahead gradually without getting too pushy.

Reading Aloud- Regular reading to your kids is really beneficial.

Reasons to fret

You need to give your kid time and space. Never get pushy with them. Gradually motivate till they inculcate a habit.

Other Choices for Making a Record of Learning When They Do not Write

A mere conversation would seem insignificant as compared to worksheets and writing tasks. There are other means to maintain records of the learning methods without having to writing. You can indulge in nature journaling or notebooking tasks. You can begin by giving the kids topics to think and write down. You can even motivate them by giving them interesting topics and after they have finished reading they can make a picture entry. Once this is done they can begin to describe the picture. The detailing will reveal how much they have heard and understood about the topic.
