10. Provide opportunities for creative writing experiences

What to Do:

  • Create Predictable Chart stories
  • Write captions for pictures, videos, PowerPoints or other presentations
  • Write notes, letters, cards, emails, texts and personal messages to others
  • Read and write poetry
  • Write modified stories or essays using sentence starters or writing frames. (Writing begins at 40 seconds)
  • Have the child share or publish writing

Things to Consider:

  • Are you choosing topics and tasks that appeal to the child?
  • Does the child a have a way to select a topic? 
  • Would there be benefit from using a Remnant Book or other collection of topics that are interesting and important to the child?
  • What should the child's writing look like in this activity?
  • What adaptations or supports will the child need?
