Teaching young kids how to write simple stories

This post is for parents who wish to teach their young children how to begin writing simple stories.

Kids can write well if they are properly taught to do so.  Give them helping words and encourage them to construct a few simple sentences around the given vocab.   Then put the sentences together to form a short story.  Here’s a sample work from Mr 6.

Helping Words

wet                  dark sky           strong wind          cold

umbrella       raincoat          puddles                 boots       

  1. The  sky is dark.
  2. A strong wind is blowing.
  3. The rain is pouring.
  4. The wet weather makes me feel cold.
  5. I wear a raincoat and Mummy uses an umbrella.
  6. I wear boots because there are puddles on the road.

A Rainy Day

The  sky is dark and a strong wind is blowing.  The rain is pouring.  The wet weather makes me feel cold.  I wear a raincoat and Mummy uses an umbrella.  I wear boots because there are puddles on the road.

Have fun teaching your little ones!  It isn’t as difficult as you would think.
