Getting Started with Writing

There are lots of ways to incorporate writing into your daily routine. Writing and reading are so connected that many of these ideas could also incorporate reading.

Daily journaling: Many grade levels already do this. Journaling is a great way to get kids to express themselves as well as use later as a reference for more directed writing projects.
