A few more thoughts on writing. A lot of people think that because kids are growing up, they have to write all the time. To them, it doesn’t seem to be a problem because they can write the same thing over and over again. But writing is much more than just writing. It’s a form of communication. It’s a way of communicating with your peers and teachers.
It’s not that I don’t think writing is a quality of life experience. But it is. Writing’s the word for word. Its the word that gets written.
To some extent I think it’s important to keep them in line. When a child has enough time to write and they’ve had enough time to write, its better to be creative and write them as before. But they’ll be writing about the content of their work, too. If they’re not working their own, then it’s probably just more time they’ll get bored writing.
I think its important to keep them in line with writing. Sure, it can be good to allow them to write their work as they go. I think it’s sometimes a good idea to give them a little time to write a short sentence or two a week or so. And I think it’s okay to allow them to write a little on their own. I think some kids don’t want to write, and that’s okay. I think it’s a good idea to allow them to write.
Writing can be a great way to teach kids how to write. In my opinion, as long as theyre writing on their own, they should be allowed to do it.
Some kids are not going to write as much as they would like to. They might need a little more time. The problem is when kids do not know how to write. That is, kids who know how to write, but don’t know how to write in the first place. That is the problem with 4th grade writing, and it is a problem that many 4th grade writers, and most 5th grade writers, have problems with as well.
So, I’ve said a lot about the importance of writing, but here’s one more: How does the writing you do impact the way you think about your future? It probably does. And, it probably doesn’t. How can you write well, if you don’t know how to write? Well, you can’t write well if you don’t know how to write.
I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating. If you’re a writer, you need to know how to write well. And, if you don’t, then you’re not gonna be a writer. So, if you’re a writer, you need to write well and you need to know how to write well. The thing about writing is, that the more you know about the craft, the easier it gets.
Writing is a huge part of what it means to be a writer. And, it’s a huge part of learning how to be a writer. But, it’s not something that you can learn in a night of class. I think your writing journey begins in the classroom, and you have to build it up through experience. I mean, if youre a writer, you need to write.
For most of us, writing is a side-thing for which we get a little involved. It’s a hobby, a form of self-expression, and a way of getting a small chunk of our attention to work towards our education. But, it’s not something that you can simply dive into in your spare time. I think you have to build your writing up through your experience and through practice. The more you write, the better you get at it.
