I Wrote That Book!

I have had the opportunity recently to work with K-1 teachers on helping children become excited writers from the beginning of their school career. What I have noticed, and I think research indicates this, is that 'writing' activities are too often tied to 'handwriting' activities. For some children, handwriting is very cumbersome at the beginning. Remember, early childhood children are still developing fine motor skills. If 'writing' activities (putting your thoughts on paper) are always tied to the need to handwrite, many children will have a negative view and misunderstanding of writing. My suggestion is to keep those two subjects separate, at the beginning. Do handwriting activities
