INTRODUCTION TO PRE-WRITING SKILLS STIMULATION FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS AND PARENTS
Writing skills are one of the skills that are honed and developed at the elementary school level. However, many parents and educators at the kindergarten level have begun to worry that their children will not be able to write by the time they enter primary school, so they started teach children to practice writing since preschooler age. This stimulation is not match with the application of the learning pyramid, where academic ability including writing skills, is the peak ability that needs to be built by several supporting aspects. On this occasion, education and introductions were given to educators and parents of early childhood about the right stimulation to hone the writing skills of preschooler students. The target is to provide an understanding of the basic foundations and the proper stimulation to develop writing skills, so that educators and parents can assist children's growth and development optimally. Community service is carried out through online webinars, which consist of material presentation by child psychologists, role play and discussions with participants. The webinar out has succeeded in increasing the knowledge, understanding and acceptance of educators and parents about the importance of stimulating pre-writing skills before the preschooler kids learn how to write.
