Summer is in full swing and the last thing kids are thinking about is writing. The best way to encourage it is by making it fun. This free printable Build and Write Lego Challenge is just the thing to get your child excited to write even during the long summer days.
You’ve all heard your child’s teacher remind you that it is important to keep your kids learning during the summer to keep their minds sharp and avoid the summer learning loss. This can be done by reading summer books for kids or starting a summer reading program. You can sneak in a lot of math and literacy review with summer learning activities. Heading out on a family vacation to explore nature, museums, and US States for kids is another easy way to incorporate learning this summer. Many students, however, have a tendency to neglect writing during the summer. We have more than 500 pages of writing prompts for kids, including these summer writing prompts, but today we wanted to share a new spin on summer writing with kids – Build and Write Lego Challenge!
These are a fantastic, free printable tool for children from kindergarten, first grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 4th grade, 5th grade, and 6th grade.
Writing Prompts for Kids
Print out the printable and post it where it is easily seen. Each week day during the month of July your child can read the building challenge and the writing challenge. The challenges can be done at the same time or break it up during the day.
Provide your child plenty of paper and pencils, crayons, markers, or other writing elements. Think about providing colored pencils for more fun writing. Your child can use colored pencils to indicate verbs, adjectives, nouns, or perhaps new vocabulary words. You can also allow your child to just use the pencils to decorate the page.
Summer writing is all about creativity not stress. Allow for free writing and check grammar and spelling with gentle care. The writing challenge can be kept to one page.
Take a picture of the building challenge and attach it to the writing sample and place it in a folder. Make it a family project by building the challenges together and allowing each person to add to the writing challenge.
If you don’t have a child who likes to build then witch the building challenges to drawing challenges.
