Keep a Summer Journal


Your child's life is full of adventures worth writing about! Buy a notebook for your child to use as a travel journal or everyday diary. If she's computer-savvy or artsy, have her take digital photos and write captions to create an online slideshow of her summer fun. Journaling is a great way to reinforce the five Ws of story-telling, used in school reports. Keep a journal every school year or summer, and she will have a special keepsake — and a great record of how her writing has improved since the previous year.
