I am a teacher and author of both children’s and adult books. Kids Write! is a blog emerging from my successful experiences using a playful approach to teaching.
We all need a reason to write. Children are no different. Teaching children to write is a struggle when we expect them to write for adult reasons that have little reality in a child’s world. During my twenty years of teaching writing, I found children at all levels eager to extend their play and pretend, solve problems, share stories, and plan new adventures by writing.
Whether you are a parent, teacher, or writer, this blog is for those who want to bring adventure, magic, and play to children through writing.
It is my hope to:
- Share playful writing activities that kids enjoy
- Gain feedback and comments to expand on these activities
- Engage in discussions about teaching writing.
- Create a space for others to share their Play to Write ideas
I look forward to hearing your ideas, stories, and activities to keep writing fun and meaningful for young writers.
Keep visiting to make discoveries and share your own Kids Write! Ideas.
