Greetings from Language Arts! I wanted to share a few templates I've created to encourage your children to write. The first is a template for writing a letter, and the second is a template for writing a story. By the third quarter of our school year, both of these templates will have been introduced as in-class activities. Both of these activities are endlessly open-ended: write a letter to a family member or a fictional character, write a story about an imaginary friend or an insect! I hope these activities will inspire your children to create.
