My P2 daughter's creative writing skill is weak. She loves reading. However, she will face difficulties when writing a composition. How can I help her to improve the writing skill?

You can teach her by helping her to scaffold her writing. One way is to use mind maps. In every story, you need to answer where are we? Who is in the story? When did it all begin or happen? What happened / is the problem? How was it solved, or how does it end?

Teach her also to mindmap descriptions of what her characters look like, or what the place looks like. Can also teach her to think about feelings and thoughts and what they say and how they say it (highlight to her how different kinds of people speak differently).

At p2, expect simple elaborations, nothing complex... just getting her to think about it first and being aware of them. She will gradually learn to weave it all in.

If it's based on pictures and helping word, help her to think of sentences that she might use for those words. Help her to describe the scene and the characters in more detail. help her to think about what the characters are feeling/thinking in the picture.

Then also teach her to paragraph. usually one pic one para.

hope that helps.

You can also buy this book quick reference to creative writing (written by Jayanthi Madhukar) It is by Success Publications Pte Ltd.

Pick up some neutral feelings and settings phrase that can apply for any type of story. Discuss them with your child. Then, ask her to memories them.

hope this will help
