My child's writing homework is dull. How do I keep her inspired?


Every great story deserves a cover. Celebrate your child's writing by helping her add durable covers that will decorate and preserve her work. You might purchase plastic covers or prompt your child to make covers out of manila folders, construction paper or posterboard. This lets her know you think her writing is valuable.
