Why Is It Important For Kids To Write Letters?

Besides the fact that kids enjoy writing like ‘big kids’ or grownups, there are so many other reasons you should do practice writing activities with your child.

Develop Creativity

Kids feel important when they have attempted and succeed in a task. When children experiment with writing and drawing, they are able to explore creativity and self expression.

Fine Motor Skills

Holding a pencil or writing tool is a great way to develop age appropriate fine motor skills with fingers and hands. The letter I preschool worksheets help guide little fingers to do big tasks.

Communication

The preschool worksheets for the letter I give children an opportunity to practice basic writing skills. When children start to write they discover that words and sentences are used to communicate ideas with others.

Cognitive Skills

When children write to communicate they need to process information and problem solve where each letter and word should go within a sentence. Processing information is an important step in cognitive thinking and the writing process.
