Writing is a personal activity in which we compose messages which we put down to read, The writing part of any early literacy intervention is not done just as a service to learning to read; it  is not merely an activity engaged in to prepare a child to be a reader.  In the end students should move forward with relative independence into any of the writing tasks demanded by the education system. And reading and writing activities should continue to enrich each other.
