What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

Your son sounds like he needs some assurance that at his age we don't expect full sentence writing or just the very beginning stages. Mistakes are often made, even by the best of students!

To help him enjoy writing consider having him keep a journal so he can see the progression of his learning and skill attainment. Even an online journal can be fun!

Then years down the road he can see how much he did really know as a young kindergartner!

Good luck to all.
