Story Starter Cards to Get Your Grandkids Writing
When it comes to helping our grandchildren learn to write well, ideas are often hard to come by.
While many children are happy to sit down and write a story, they may find it hard to know where to start.
They also seem to fall into the habit of writing about the same old things over and over again.
Well, thanks to Astro’s Adventures help is on the way!
Story Starter Cards
Story Starter Cards are free educational resources you can download.
They are in full color and each one has a unique and fun sentence, which children must use to begin their story.
You can be as flexible as you like, but the quirky and inspiring ideas on each card will certainly pique any child’s imagination.
Using Story Starter Cards
Once you have selected the card you want right click it and save it to your computer.
From there you can print the cards out and laminate them if you wish; that way they will last longer.
Mix up the cards and let your grandchildren choose one that they like.
Depending upon their age and skill level you could set a word maximum.
This is a great opportunity to talk about punctuation, spelling and grammar too.
Remember, not to be too critical as this may dent your grandchild’s confidence, which may result in them not wanting to write at all.
Another great way to share is to let them record their story into the recording app on your smartphone?
That way they can listen to themselves over and over again, and share it with others.
