National Encourage a Young Writer Day is celebrated on April 10th. To encourage little ones to put pen to paper, PBS KIDS is sharing activities and resources that get the creative juices flowing.
Children learn to read and write when they are shown by example. When my girls were little, I spent days in the classroom holding writing workshops or participating as a mystery reader.
Unsure where to get the creative process started? Here are some activities below for any age:
- 13 PBS KIDS Games for Reading and Storytelling is perfect to share with your youngsters, and they’re all available on the PBS KIDS Games App and website
- Check out a few of these exciting 9 Children’s Books Filled with Fantasy from your local library
- Plan to Host Storytime at Home on April 10th. You can Skype in friends and family to join the fun
- This book list is guaranteed to get the whole family giggling
- For quick inspiration and great role models, check out previous winners of the PBS KIDS Writers Contest
PBS KIDS and PBS KIDS for Parents offer free access to media content and community-based experiences that support learning for young children.
