Does your child have difficulties knowing how much to write? For instance, when they are asked to write an answer to a question would they write a couple of lines rather than a full response?
This is very typical! If you don't tell a child what is expected of them then they won't know. To overcome this difficulty, I use a traffic light system. At the top of the page, I use a green circle to indicate where the child has to start writing. Then a red circle is used to show when the child can stop writing. This can be moved depending on the requirements of the task.
