Writing

Your child's language skills are getting better now. Reading regularly to your child is very important for him to develop good writing skills as reading builds his vocabulary and language abilities. Hence, reading becomes the basis for mastering writing skills.

Read to your child daily. You can make it part of the bedtime ritual where you can read aloud to him books, focussing on sounds, pronunciation, etc. (Dr. Seuss books). As he gains sound awareness, he will try to break the word into separate sounds and match the sound to the printed letters. This way he starts to read and write.

In day to day routine, get him to read traffic signs, store logos, labels on food items in a grocery store. This way you are exposing him to different prints and with sound awareness, he will try to write them. If he draws a tree or bird, get him to write what he has drawn. Talk to your child often about daily routine activities, describing your chores, etc. This will add to his vocabulary and with reinforcement you can get him to write the words spoken.
