"Share the Pen" Writing with your Child
"Shared writing" gives young children the chance to do some writing while you fill in the rest. This is how it works: Decide together with your child what to write and then you "share the pen" as you write. You can tackle the unknown parts and let your child write the letters/words they can tackle. You can then read what you wrote, invite your child to read it, or read it together. Try creating a daily schedule, poem or a list of outdoor activities to do together.
