CBA Tips for Parents
Reading and Writing
Writing that makes sense
When a child first learns to write, his stories may not always make sense. You can help his words flow logically using these two ideas.
1. Let him read his stores to you. Ask him questions to add more information or to clear up a confusing part. Often, children will self-correct once they read the story aloud.
2. If he isn't writing sentences yet, he can tell you a story. It will enable him to think in a logical order and you can write it down for him and read it together. Using words he can decode or knows by sight will excite him as you read aloud.
