Story Writing Month
With Reading in progress for at least half an hour of various stories, follow ‘How to Write a Story’ and let the kids get to imagine to write a paragraph. Gradually, help them to write a para and blog it here. By end of the month, you can find a story written with a child’s imagination in a simple way. If you want, you can write a para a week and you have four simple paragraphs. This can be a beginning to make them write simple short stories.
