All About English Creative Writing

Postby wet » Wed Nov 07, 2007 9:48 pm

I'm trying to figure out how I can get my son to improve his creative writing, a skill necessary for his composition in school. He does lots of reading, but somehow is not good at forming sentences.

Anyone knows of any good service? Will speech and drama classes help?

Just found this blog. Perfect example of a mummy, son and daugther blog. Great for creative writing to get your children to blog. Check it out here.

My kid is too young to blog. There should be some attractive attraction to get kids to do something, even like blogging. You may need to find her soft spot on what interest her, some carrots to dangle infront her

ya..starting a blog is a cool idea. fyi, i think the blog you stated is written by the mummy from her son's point of view. many mummy bloggers do that too. 8)

Yes...there is a school system call "lead". There, every student has an account. Even the teachers blog...
