How can I get my kids to write? Ages 6 & 8

Posted by   + Show Post

Hi there,

I'm not a full-time homeschooling mom yet, but I see it in my future.  I am doing some homeschooling this summer, just to get our feet wet.

We need to work on writing, not the act of printing, but writing sentences, their own sentences, very short stories, etc.  They are just not into it.  It is like pulling teeth. When I google "how to write", I get results back on handwriting, printing, etc.   So does anyone have ideas or websites or worksheets on instructing kids on writing?

Thank you.

My daughter likes sticker stories. The top is blank and you give them a few stickers (themesare good and not too many). Then they color the scene.

From that they create a story. Either describe the scene or what is happening. They can elaborate and make it a whole story as they get more creative.
