Writing is more than handwriting and letter formation. It is important for a beginning reader to learn how to put his own thoughts into sentences that make sense to others. By practicing real writing early on, a child is better able to comprehend and connect the other pieces of the reading puzzle together.

Burton Reading integrates writing into all lessons from day one. After completing all 24 units of Burton Reading: Beginnings, your child will be able to write a few sentences with:

  • Each sentence beginning with a capital letter.
  • Each sentence ending with a punctuation mark.
  • No missing words.
  • Correct handwriting.
  • Sentences with age appropriate structure.
  • Most words spelled correctly.(new words will include most sounds)
