Does anyone have any advice on how I can quickly improve their literacy skills? Especially writing...TIA!
Are you talking about content or handwriting?

If it's handwriting, they just need practice. - They haven't been using those fine motor skills all summer!

Try to incorporate some hand stretches into transitions or, if you have indoor recess on bad weather days, put out things like playdough, scissors, crayons... (If there's an OT in your building, they may have suggestions or even materials to loan you as well.)

And there's nothing wrong with some good old-fashioned letter formation sheets for morning work!
