5 Ways Writing is good for Children (By an 8 year old)

Hi. I'm Sarah's youngest sister. I wanna be a writer when I grow up. Here are five ways I think writing is good for children.

1. Writing helps kids learn more words. They have to discover more words to say what they mean.

2. Starting young gives you more time to improve. If you start young and write your whole life, you will have had practice and will be better when your older.

3. It stretches their imagination. It gives their imagination more practice.

4. Writing is a good activity for kids to do when they're bored. It's good for their education and they can do it anytime. And it's better than a video game.

5. When kids share their ideas with their friends, it makes everyone happy. When other people find out someone's ideas, it makes them excited. 

Kids, I encourage you to write :)


  1. Sarah, those are all good points. Glad I started young.

  2. Excellent points. I started young. I would write a few stories, but I did the most writing in my diary.

  3. Great list! My 8-year-old daughter would surely agree!

  4. Very good post and so very true. My youngest daughter loves to write when she gives herself time to do so. I try to encourage her to pursue it, because I'm amazed at the depth I see there, even at 17. Writing is such freedom.

  5. These are great points! Nice post.

  6. I agree with all of these. They're some of the reasons I like writing.
