I worried about the kids loosing their writing skills over the summertime. Or perhaps, I thought I would bribe them with some writing of their own to rival the massive amount of writing that I have been doing!
Each of the kids has a writing journal, and I try to give them some writing prompts every once in a while to get them excited about writing.
On this particular day, I gave them a stack of magazines, scissors, and glue sticks. Their mission was to cut out a head, a body, a scene and a prop and glue them together to make one picture and write about who their person is, what he/she is doing, where they are at and whatever else they wanted.
Their stories were cute and their pictures were fantastic!
