Tips to help your young writer
The Stages of Writing Development
These writers also develop in their sense of audience. Starting with no audience in mind and just writing what makes sense to them, even if it is turned around and misspelled. They then turn to understand audience and the English language and start to focus on sentence structure and flow.
Because of these stages we need to encourage our students at every level. Preliterate writers are eager to share their work and to tell you what they "wrote." We need to encourage this so that they continue on their path to becoming great writers.

So How Can You Help In The Writing Process?
Planning and Organizing. Two most important things to remember for prewriting. Graphic organizers help, as well as outlines and notes.
Writing the paper or letter and really getting all the details to come together to make sense. This is like putting a puzzle together and creating something from all your notes and planning.
This is critical, so that your young writer can see how they can improve and what they do well. They can see their progress from start to finish and be proud of what they have accomplished.
