Write About It!

Spring Break (or any vacation/special activity) provides a new opportunity for you to practice storytelling with your child. Whether or not you went on an exotic vacation, she’ll surely have something to share about a fun activity she did during break. You can do this together. If your little one’s too young to write, have her tell you her story about something fun she did, and you can write it out for her. Encourage her to give lots of details in chronological order, including how she felt. Afterwards, she can illustrate the story. If she’s old enough to write by herself, she can do both the writing and illustrating on her own. In doing this, not only will she be building her narrative skills, but she’ll also have a handmade keepsake from her adventure.

If you need a little inspiration, or you just want to read a fun vacation book, check out one of my favorites, Froggy Goes to Hawaii, by Jonathan London.
