Writing Prompts: A Jar of Possibilities
Imagine the following scene with me:
Mom: “You need to write a story today.”
Child(with a blank stare): “ A story!?!”
Mom: “Yes a story!”
Child: “But I don’t know what to write about!”
Mom:“Well use your imagination! I am sure that you can figure out something!”
[Mom leaves the child to their thoughts! An hour later Mom goes to check the child’s paper, only to find there is nothing on the paper!]
Mom:“Why don’t you have your story written like I said for you to?”
Child: “I told you that I didn’t know what to write about!”
Mom: “Well you need to write a story!”
[Mom leaves the child alone and a bit frustrated!]
Do you have this happen with your child? Do you want to put an end to this scene happening in your home school adventure? If so, I have the solution to this problem!
