Another way to get your kids writing is to begin by reading a mentor text together. Here is an example:
Article: “Let Go of the Lie” by Ann Voskamp
Stylistic Prompt: Write a reflective essay on something you have been learning lately. Begin with a personal anecdote and use a conversational or even poetic style. Include a few photos that illustrate your piece.
Content Prompt: What lies have you been tempted to believe in the past? What lies do you find yourself believing right now? What truths combat those lies? As you write, include short stories that show how these lies were spoken over you or otherwise embedded in you.
