How to teach a child to write correctly

For every child, the abil­i­ty to cor­rect­ly and cor­rect­ly express their thoughts is real­ly impor­tant. As soon as a child begins to learn to write, par­ents and teach­ers try to imme­di­ate­ly instill in him the skills of com­pe­tent writ­ing.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, many chil­dren make mis­takes even when writ­ing the sim­plest words. To teach a child to write cor­rect­ly, you will have to spend a cer­tain amount of time and effort. Some­times you hear about such a thing as “innate lit­er­a­cy.” But lit­er­a­cy is not innate — it is pos­si­ble to acquire this skill only in the process of devel­op­ment, and the envi­ron­ment of the child plays a sig­nif­i­cant role in acquir­ing lit­er­ate writ­ing skills. First of all, you need to pay atten­tion to how often the child reads, and what books he choos­es to read. The more books a child reads, the wider range of words will be found in these books — the more com­pe­tent­ly he will write. Visu­al mem­o­ry picks up fre­quent­ly used words from the text, and then helps to repro­duce them when writ­ing. But even chil­dren who are very fond of read­ing often write dic­ta­tions cor­rect­ly and well — but in the process of rewrit­ing the text they make annoy­ing mis­takes. In this case, child­ish care­less­ness is to blame. There­fore, in order to teach a child to write cor­rect­ly, it is nec­es­sary to help him con­cen­trate — and there­fore, to pro­vide the most calm and com­fort­able con­di­tions for com­plet­ing tasks. Of course, dur­ing class­es, you should not dis­tract the child’s atten­tion to any domes­tic issues, tele­vi­sion pro­grams, games and oth­er things. Fre­quent writ­ing of dic­ta­tions also helps — in this case, the more prac­tice, the bet­ter. It is nec­es­sary to arrange an impromp­tu dic­ta­tion at least sev­er­al times a week — to dic­tate to the child a few para­graphs from an inter­est­ing book, a piece of an arti­cle from an edu­ca­tion­al mag­a­zine, or just a text from a spe­cial col­lec­tion. The child will learn to write quick­ly and cor­rect­ly, per­ceive infor­ma­tion well by ear and are not afraid of school dic­ta­tions.
