Children should be encouraged to write down the musing from their vast imaginations. A six-year-old child can create a work of art, similar to the works of adults.
These works might be smaller, but the attention spans of children are shorter. By the time the story is written, the child will have thought of ten more stories.
Writing their own stories helps them to develop handwriting and penmanship techniques, which is so important. It also helps them to put their imaginations into words. This is difficult. It forces them to learn the rules of language. It allows them to share their imaginations in a different way that simply telling a story.
Parents can now assist children by inspiring their learning through publishing their work on Kindle Books. One such book is The Little Birdie that Thought He Went to Heaven. This is a book available for free on Kindle Unlimited.
Side note: If you have children or you typically read a lot during the month (about one book a week or two), I suggest subscribing to Kindle Unlimited. There is a lot of good stuff that you can get for a low monthly price.
Regardless, getting children to connect written language to spoken language is important. This endeavor can be achieved relatively simply by teaching children how to write their imaginations. Inspire brilliance!
