How do kids get that story started? We all know that writing skills are an essential building block for kids and are what create a solid foundation for their continuing education. If we can make writing fun and get children writing often to reinforce it, hopefully it will just become a regular habit. Having a writing prompt can be motivating and also encourage writing.
Using writing prompts or what I like to call “Imagination Launchers” can not only help get them going but it can help them build skills in areas like, explanation, and problem solving too.
