Giant Rainbow Letters -

I'm sure you've all had children make a letter, or write a word, and trace around it with different colors.

It's a "clever way" to make repetition more fun.

One teacher said that he writes enormous letters on a sheet of bulletin board paper and tapes them to the wall.

Children enjoy taking markers and seeing how many colors they can add to the giant letter.

Words and Age -

To encourage children to write longer sentences, explain that they should use as many words in their sentence as they are in age.

For example, if you're six, then your sentences should have at least six words; seven - seven words, etc.
