Creative Writing Exercises
Here are some tips for engaging your children with these writing prompts for kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, grade 3, grade 4, grade 5, and grade 6 children:
- 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.
Do not feel pressure to grade the writing if your child is just learning process. Allow him to express his creativity and free write without worrying about spelling or grammar. Once your child is satisfied with his story you can slowly go over editing it. First ask your child to pick out some things he wants to improve or knows needs to be corrected. It is important to make the editing process a team effort and gentle to encourage your child to continue writing.
