Pencils, Words & Kids

    DOWNLOAD  €3.77



    Learning to write is like weight lifting, every repetition makes you stronger.
    This app is a How To guide for kids and their mentors to get the words flowing. This app is not about grammar and spelling. It's good for all ages, like a one room schoolhouse.

    The creative writing process is presented in 81 entries and 203 photos of kids writing, original artwork, and inspiring scenes. The photos show what real writing looks like and will fuel brainstorming for stories, essays and poems.

    The Pencils, Words & Kids creative writing process engages young writers through 7 filters:
    Be a Reader First
    How & why to write
    How to use this app
    Kids speak about writing
    Responding to creative writing

    The prompts are friendly, in depth, and re-usable, riddled with vocabulary and a smattering of arts-n-crafts. The 'Pencils, Words, & Kids' app is extremely helpful to parents, mentors, educators and homeschoolers who want to rev up composition lessons, and for writers who want to develop their voice.

    Entries include:
    Permission to be creative
    Be a reader first
    Take my character, please
    What to write about
    Slow it down
    You eat it, who cooks it?
    Maps & Perspective
    Ekphrastic rhymes with fantastic!
    Don't shoot yer eye out
    Purely Visual
    Advice from Kids
    and commentary from authors & writers on the childhood books that inspired them to write.

    To summarize— creative writing is any writing that is not boring!
