At-Home Activities: 
  • Do a scavenger hunt for your kids! Create a list of items for them to find around the house. Once everything has been found, encourage them to write a story using the items.
  • Try doing some “madlibs” with your kids! Write a short story for your kids, making sure to leave out certain nouns, verbs and adverbs. Hand the paper to your kids to fill in the missing words. If you need to, help your kids by giving them a choice of words to fill in for each missing word.
