Like any other learning, teaching children to write requires patience and persistence, so that both the child and his parents do not feel frustrated or failed in their attempt. Little by little, and step by step, the child will respond to his own expectations and those of his parents.
The point is that the child does not loseillusion to learn the letters, words, phrases, in short, to write. According to experts, as a general rule,from 4 or 5 years old, the child can be prepared to take his first steps in writing, without haste or stress. It is important that writing instruction has an entertaining and relaxed tone so that the child does not feel overwhelmed.
Children normally learn to write in school, especially in primary school, although parents they can stimulate them from home, encouraging them to know and try to draw and write the letters, when they are already fluent in oral language and have started to read. When the child begins to speak, parents can help him understand that each sound is equivalent to a letter or a set of letters. It is good to read a lot to children and teach them the words you are reading. In this way, they will become familiar with the sounds and will in turn relate the sound to the spelling of the letters.
Drawing is key in the development of this task. Drawing, a child you will be practicing the ability to organize your thinking. The contact with the pencil and the intensity of the strokes will favor the mastery of this skill. And as it goes away step by step, after the child becomes familiar with drawing, it will be time to start learning vowels. The writing it is formed through words, and these from the letters of the alphabet.
Starting with vowels may be easier for your vocalization. Parents can trace the vowels with their child on a blank piece of paper, over and over again, until the child can write them all on his own. Having learned the vowels, the next step will be the consonants. It is important for parents to teach that each consonant has its respective sound. They can trace them, one by one, on a blank sheet of paper, until the child makes them by himself. In stationery stores or bookstores you can find notebooks, booklets that can help in the practice of writing.
The next step will be to make the child join the letters and form syllables, and from the syllables, very short words such as 'cow', 'ball' or 'clothes', always associating them with a drawing, so that the child always associates the word with its corresponding image. The task of writing is closely associated with reading.
To stimulate a child's writing, it is advisable not to cling, at least initially, to mistakes such as misspellings, of concordances, of lack of organization. Children do need, to begin with, encouragement and trust. Blank sheets of paper, pencils, and all possible material should be provided, whenever the child demands it. Writing will "flourish" when they least expect it.
