Tips to Encourage Writing 

  • For younger students allow them to draw a picture to go along with the writing prompt.
  • Turn the writing prompts into an opportunity to learn speech by having your child present her story.
  • For an added grammar lesson have your child mark verbs, nouns, adjectives, etc. Perhaps you can ask your child to make sure her writing has a certain number of adjectives.
  • Have your older children edit their own work.
  • For fun, allow children to write a story together or read each other’s when finished and give alternative endings.
  • Perhaps you can list vocabulary words or spelling words and challenge your child to use as many possible in her writing.
