Some children have trouble connecting ideas and planning how to put them in writing. This skill is often called written expression.
They may have a hard time thinking about what they want to say. Or they may not know where to start. They may start to write, but then they don’t know how to organize the rest.
Problems with written expression are often due to limited planning and organizing skills. But other factors can also play a role.
Use tools like graphic organizers to help children plan their writing. Try writing strategies, such as asking children to reflect before writing.
