As your children are growing, there will be many milestones to celebrate; simply being a kid is a milestone in itself! Between the ages of three and five, kids are learning consequences, sharing, self-identity, imaginative play and so much more. It can be hard not to expect a sudden change in abilities from your child during this busy time. After all, if kids are now preschoolers, shouldn’t they also be preschool-ready?

You may not be completely sure what to expect at this age, especially if this is new to you. Learning to write involves many skills. Kids need fine motor skills for handwriting and typing. Getting words on paper also requires spelling and other skills closely related to reading.

Writers need to organize their thoughts. As they get older, they’re expected to use more complex sentence structure and vocabulary. They also have to do more planning, drafting, and revising. Many kids have a tough time using these self-regulation strategies in writing.

Kids develop writing skills at different rates. But they tend to meet certain milestones by certain ages. Here’s how writing skills typically develop as kids get older.
