Engaging children intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially

Learning at Home

Progressive Story Writing

You Will Need:

Blank book or notebook, sturdy mailing envelope, markers, pens, etc.

Directions:

Have your child start a story and illustrate a few pages. Mail the book to a family member or friend that doesn’t live with you (great for grandparents!) and ask this person to continue the story. Have him/her send the book back to your child, and then decide together who to send it to next. This can continue as long as there are pages left to fill!

Tip:

Make your child part of the whole process. She can pick out the blank book, plan what the story will be about, illustrate it (either glue pictures or draw directly in the book), and decide who to send it to. When the book is full, put pictures of the authors and illustrators in the back with the date of publication. If your child can’t write, she can dictate the story to you.
