Raise a Reader Tip #6

Welcome to my “Raise a Reader” series where I share tips on encouraging early literacy.  Check back weekly for a new tip.

Tip #6: Always keep writing materials easily accessible to your children.  Pens, pencils and paper should be stored attractively.  Make it look inviting to write and draw.  If children have practiced drawing, then it will be easy for them to print.  If the materials are inviting and easy to get, they will use them! Practice makes perfect.
