When a child asks, “I don’t know what to write?” the answer, “Well, JUST WRITE!” is ineffective. That isn’t the case. Teachers must guide students through the Writing Process in the classroom. Children must be taught to write. A solid understanding of the writing process will assist your child and students in producing a fantastic piece of writing.

Writing is a challenging task for many people, let alone children. To handle the seemingly insurmountable chore of writing, the best approach is to divide it into smaller, more manageable chunks.

The Five Stages of the Writing Process

Drafting —> Writing —> Editing —> Revising —> Finalising

1.Drafting

This is where writers brainstorm and study ideas for their writing, often known as the pre-writing stage. Some people like to jot down their ideas in bullet points, while others utilise mind-maps to organise their thoughts.

2.Writing

Following the planning step, the first copy is written. Students organise their thoughts in this stage. The nuances of grammar and spelling are generally secondary here as compared to getting the storeyline through.

3.Editing

When the first draft is finished, students revise it by restructuring and correcting their contents. In this step, students add or delete details to improve their draft.

4.Revision

The complexities of grammar, punctuation, and spelling are taken into account here. Any mistakes must be fixed here. Teachers may allow students to help edit each other’s draughts in the classroom. However, in most primary schools, this level is primarily performed by instructors.

5.Finalising and Publishing

When all of the flaws have been rectified and the writer is satisfied, the completed piece of work is usually shared with an audience. Students’ writings are occasionally posted on walls and notice boards in class, published as class stories, or blogged about in class.
