Encouraging your Child's Writing Talent
The Involved Parents' GuideBook - 2006
Have a child who doodles and draws on every assignment sheet? Who must write down every new word or phrase she learns? Who repeats certain words just because he likes the way they roll off of his tongue? Encouraging Your Child's Writing Talent brings a new perspective to teaching kids writing-one that helps parents and teachers encourage and cultivate a child's creative insights and love of words through the writing process. The author provides important information about developing a child's writing talent, including tips for: recognizing the characteristics of the gifted writer, encouraging your child to explore his or her creativity, including writing in day-to-day activities, and setting up writing workshops within the home. Along the way, stories and insights from published writers and examples of children's written musings show how the budding writer can be encouraged in his or her self-expression. Book jacket.
