Week 35: Practice Writing – Write a Book!

I really love all of those hidden ways there are to teach my kids something when they don’t even know they’re learning. Finding learning opportunities in everyday things is a big part of why I created The Trip Clip.

Week 35: Practice Writing – Write a Book!

Having your kids write their own book is wonderful writing practice!  These simple templates from The Trip Clip are a great way to get inspired – the small size (half sheet of paper) feels less overwhelming for a new writer, and they’ll enjoy making their own pictures!

These printable story templates let kids use their imaginations to write stories and draw pictures. Easily create a little book for your budding author!   These printable story templates let kids use their imaginations to write stories and draw pictures.

This activity is especially helpful if you combine it with a Custom Bingo Board to get the creative juices flowing:

Use The Trip Clip to generate a random Bingo Board, and then have your kids use the pictures to inspire them to write a story!

You can have your child pick one picture as an idea to inspire a story, or you can even ask them to pick a row or a column and incorporate all of the pictures they see into their story!

You can also print out templates with a center dotted line for really little authors.
