Encourage Your Child to Write About What She Already Knows

Children find it easier to practice their writing skills when writing about topics they already know. So give your child a writing prompt that involves something she knows quite well – like her own bedroom. The prompt could begin "What I love most about my bedroom..." When she’s done, talk about the story.
