Today's illustration inspired by my wonderful teammate! Use your imagination to explore writing. Find a topic of interest, and enjoy the longevity of the writing process: creative, narrative, opinion or informational writing (and in the process your child can learn/research about a whatever he/she chooses!). This writing activity could be up to 2 hrs of fun (research item/play with item, plan story, draft story, edit story, publish story with illustrations).
Simple sentence starters:
Creative writing - If I were a dog…My dog and I…When my dog went on vacation and left us at home…
Narrative (pretend to be the dog) - My water bowl was empty again…When I saw a squirrel…Treat time?
Opinion - What I love about dogs…If I had a dog…The greatest part about…____is better than__
Informational - There are many reasons…Research shows that…Let me explain…Did you know?
Other writing ideas:
1. Nursing homes are missing their loved ones! Writing to an elderly in a nursing home could bring utmost joy as they are on a lockdown to all social interactions, thank you Lisa Schofield for your thoughtful idea!
2. Thank you letters to community workers: Governor Polis for helping keep Colorado healthy, healthcare professionals for their endless efforts, family and friends for being socially responsible.
