Most visual kids struggle with writing. They have a lot of ideas happening all the time- but the ideas are pictures inside their head. Writing requires them to translate their images into words and get them on paper. Visual thinkers are less experienced and may not have words for what they can see. They’re less comfortable with words, and words are much slower than images for them.
A great way to help them translate those images into words is to have them start by drawing a picture. Once they get that picture out of their head and onto paper, it becomes a little easier to find a few sentences to write about it. Think of their drawing as another story starter. Fortunately for you and the kids, we have just the tool to help with this process. Our story paper has a large blank space at the top for a drawing and a couple lines underneath for writing sentences about it. So get it today and help the kids get comfortable writing.
