All children young, fresh minds children and should step up and make use of all the unexplored skills they have in reading and writing. The more you read the better it gets. At the end of the day, you build and discover a hobby that is so interesting.
Children who read widely have insight on different topics and experiences that are happening around the world. The truth is that no single person can travel all corners of the world during their lifetime. It is through reading that they get to know how unique different cultures are around the world.
When it comes to writing, the skill has to be developed through practice. The more you write, the better your handwriting gets. Besides writing goes hand in hand with reading.
Whatever knowledge you discover through reading you have to share it through writing so that it does not remain with you. This is how knowledge is passed on from generation to generation.
For fun, you can form book clubs. With friends, you can choose a book and start reading it together as you discuss the different plots in the book.
If all children made reading a hobby, they would discover new things about everything, your minds would explore what you have never known before and it will be extreme fun. If this happens then young readers would become knowledgeable and better writers of the future.
I encourage you as you begin the term, to pick a storybook, novel, or even comic book that you love and read it to the end.
