With all the activity and adventures happening in the summer, there is plenty of material for writing. However, most visual kids struggle with writing. They have a lot of ideas happening all the time- but they’re pictures in their head. Writing requires them to translate their rich multi-dimensional images into words and get them on paper. It’s an overwhelming challenge that can feel impossible. Visual thinkers may not have words for what they can see. They’re less experienced and less comfortable with words, and words are much slower than images.
With that said, visual kids need to practice handwriting all summer too so they don’t slip back into illegibility. Better handwriting gives kids unconscious competency so they can concentrate on what they’re writing instead of how to write it.
