Encouraging Young Writers…

I came upstairs to tuck my daughter in and found her wall plastered with fictitious missing pet posters. I cracked up because each one was carefully labeled, “THIS IS FAKE” lest someone think Salt and Jack were actually lost.

I love writing activities that encourage imagination, I love them even more when my seven year old thinks them up herself.

How much fun would this be in a classroom? Did Mr. Putter’s best friend Tabby go missing? What does she look like? How might she be acting? So many possibilities!
