Raise a Reader Writing

Scribbling and drawing are forms of writing — they may not be words, but the lines and pictures your child draws mean something to them.

Scribbling and drawing help children develop  eye-hand coordination and the fine motor  control they need to hold a pencil.

Writing doesn't always have to be writing. It can be tracing in sand, playing with play dough, or crinkling up newspaper to help strengthen finger muscles!

As children write, they become aware that the printed letters and words have meaning. They begin to understand the purpose of reading through the process of writing.
