Kids 6 to 8 years: Writing

Reading and writing go together. Both are ways to represent spoken words and to communicate information. Seven-year-olds now pay attention to how words are spelled and correctly spell words they have studied. Eight-year-olds are discussing their writing with other children and respond helpfully to their writing.


  • Encourage writing by producing stories with scripts.
  • Produce a newspaper and record events.
  • Practice day-to day reading and writing such as following a recipe or writing a note.
