In my experience I have found that narrative is the right place to start for reluctant writers. For your older one, you can start withe personal narrative and younger one can start with 3 part story with a beginning, middle and an end (any narrative). If younger one hasn't started writing on his/her own, encourage to write using inventive spelling. You can make your older child write in a journal or blogs. As Farida said Reading and writing should go hand in hand. The books they read can be used as mentor text for their writing. Then they can move on to Persuasive and informational writing. But writing requires a continuum of skills to be practiced such as organization skills, ideas, sentence fluency, vocabulary, convention and presentation which vary for each age or the child's writing level. If you need more input, will be happy to help.

Hi Kratika It takes time to develop strong writing skills, and it can be accomplished by regular Reading and writing practice. Regular reading is a stepping stone to better writing and helps kids’ strengthen their writing skills. It helps expand children’s vocabulary and shows them different ways of using u site word exercises ,reading aloud, and even reading popular stories like The Lion and the Mouse, The Grasshopper and the ant and so on. My older one who is 9 years old , I have started with Famous five, I wanted to get him hooked to reading and it is showing significance improvement because my son didn't want to read at all, only what is necessary. For writing , I get him to write from his school work itself , the entire lesson has to be read and questions answered in his own understanding, no copying or memorising the content. Apart from that Handwriting Exercises prove to be very useful in helping him deal with a lot of issues like concentration, improve the clarity of writing , speed , calms him down and so on. I am attaching a link to some of the pictures I have added to my Instagram. you can check out the same https://www.instagram.com/p/BWrsfZcBHVJ/

hi Kartika Mittal ! u could give your child coloured pens and a notepad in which she could write anything she wants to say her day at school, the picnic she enjoyed the most or any topic which she would like to write on. teach her the technique such as jotting down points, then elaborating those. have an amazing beginning and a meaningful end, that would keep the person hooked on to it till the end. ask her to read it out to u,praise her for her genuine efforts, and give good remarks for handwriting. also make sure she practices writing on different textures such as froth ,easel board kept at an angle, sand etc . surfaces at an angle would improve her writing speed as well penmanship. make her do hand excercises which would improve her fine motor skills. pleae go through this blog.

Hi Kratika, could you please clarify one thing? When you say 'improve english', do you mean the penmanship or different types of writing?
