Noting that one of the most important parts of knowing how to write well is to feel comfortable doing it, this information sheet lists some things parents can do to encourage their children to write and presents a series of writing activities. The information sheet notes that parents can: (1) show their children that they write often; (2) encourage their young children to scribble; (3) play writing and spelling games; (4) explain that math problems are a form of writing; and (5) talk about why people write. The information sheet presents four activities for young children, four activities for more advanced writers, and four activities for writers of any age. (RS)
