Ayude a Su Nino con la Escritura (You Can Help Your Child with Writing).
Part of a series designed to provide practical ideas parents can use to help children become readers, this Spanish-language booklet focuses on how to encourage young children to write. The booklet describes the kinds of writing that children do, offers suggestions on how to encourage children to experiment with spelling, and urges parents not to be overly concerned with the correctness of their young child's writing. The booklet provides specific activities for parents, such as (1) practicing writing; (2) providing the child with easy access to writing materials; (3) celebrating children's authorship; (4) valuing their writing; (5) reading to the child; (6) encouraging a child's storytelling; and (7) encouraging children's teachers to incorporate writing as part of the daily curriculum. A list of 11 recommended books and articles and a list of resources available from the International Reading Association are appended. (SR)
