The Write Start
The following templates can be used to jump-start some of your kids’ writing. Simply select whatever templates tickle your fancy, and get writing. Or you can use them as models for creating your own one-of-a-kind writing templates, customized with your own children in mind. Either way, these templates are meant to be a starting point for creative writing. Playful prototypes. I hope they inspire you and your kids to write away.
