A sentence is a group of words that contains at least one subject and a predicate, object, or complement. Sentences can also be referred to as statements about a thought or feeling expressed through words that have been arranged in such away.
The sentence is also the smallest unit of language in spoken or written form that contains a complete expression of thought. In written form, sentences are expressed in an up and down voice, loud and soft, between pauses. Sentences also end with a period (.), question mark (?), or exclamation mark (!).
For kindergarten children who have good motor development, you can start training them to write. Launching from various sources, here are 8 ways to teach kindergarten children to write:
Kindergarten children need to be taught how to form letters in a sentence writing context. We can teach the use of capital letters, spaces, and punctuation while showing the correct arrangement of letters.
Let the child choose a topic to learn to write. At kindergarten age, they usually like topics about themselves, family, and friends.
To start writing, usually, kindergarten children are often confused. Well, you can give them time and help spell letters to build your little one’s confidence.
Spelling letters can help children write words and are suitable for beginner writers such as kindergartners. Even so, don’t make them focus on the correct spelling, okay?
Instead of writing complex sentences, give them examples of very simple sentences. You can write letters or words that your child can follow.
Kindergarten children need to know how to read and spell some of the words they see to be able to write confidently. We can use media such as songs on television or posters on the wall to help them.
Many kindergartners know words but cannot distinguish them form letters. We can make word and letter charts to make it easier for children to distinguish between them and learn to write.
Give a wide space for kindergartners to write. Some young children are not ready to write on lined paper. Paper can be a barrier to the ideas that a child might think of when learning to write.
Fun activities can encourage children to learn to write. One of the activities is writing letters. Ask your little one to write a letter to a relative or family by writing his name on paper.
When your child can write names in upper and lower case, try teaching the rest of the letters. Teach children to write letters from straight, then curved, and end with a slightly more complicated diagonal letter.
To appreciate a child’s writing, it never hurts to paste the writing in an open space on several sides of the house. When appreciated like this, the Little One can unconsciously feel that he is valuable because the effort when learning to write is appreciated. Children in general, tend to repeat actions that get attention.
Creativity diminishes with age. By teaching your little one to write creatively from an early age, we encourage him to stay creative and imaginative. Apart from writing, we also teach him about self-confidence, how to communicate his feelings and thoughts to others. The following are some examples of sentence writing practice worksheets that you can study with your child at home.
