6 Things for Children to Understand About Writing and 4 Ways to Help Them Get Started

6 Things for Children to Understand About Writing and 4 Ways to Help Them Get Started | 6th grade writing | Scoop.it
We understand that if kids don’t read and write over the summer, their reading and writing muscles grow slack. They lose some of their imaginative muscle. Just like a coach sees the difference in her players if they spent the summer lounging instead of being active, I certainly see a literary sluggishness in my students if they return to school in the fall without picking up a book or writing in their journals with true engagement.
