Reading and writing go hand in hand, but did you know that practicing writing can actually improve a child’s literacy skills? Various studies have clearly demonstrated the tremendously positive impact that writing can have on reading comprehension and fluency.

The summer months are a fantastic time for your child to see how fun writing can be! Encourage your child to write as much as possible using the suggestions and links below. The best part is, all your child needs to improve their writing skills is paper, a pencil, and their own imagination and creativity!
