Comic Strip Writing
Use comic strips to help with writing. Cut off the "balloons" over each character's head. Then ask the child to invent words for the characters (orally or in writing).
Promote creativity and build muscle control with a pail of water and a brush. On a warm day, take your children outside to the driveway or sidewalk and encourage them to write anything they wish. Talk about what they've written.
Improve listening skills and imagination by reading a story aloud to your child and stopping before the ending. Ask the child how the story will turn out. Then finish the story and discuss the ending with the child.
