Benefits of Writing
Jaci Conry of the Boston Globe has written an article on the benefits of children writing letters. Not only does letter writing teach children the mechanics of writing it also teaches them delayed gratification as well as to pause and consider the artistry of communication. In today's digital world we all need that!
The above quote is from a 2015 study by the UK based National Literacy Trust. Ms. Conry also writes of her own experiences with letter writing. You can visit the Globe to read the article here.
