Slice of Life: Fan Fiction for Caregivers- Other Ideas are Welcome!!!




Every Tuesday, the writing community of Two Writing Teachers hosts Slice of Life. All are welcome to participate by linking up posts or commenting on other participants. 


Over the next few weeks, I am taking on the challenge of creating parent-friendly bulletin boards at schools in an effort to involve care-givers with students' writing lives. While I am envisioning articles about workshop practices, I also want to have cards people can take that describe games and activities they can do with children to incorporate play into their writing lives. 

I've written a few ideas out on 4*6 pieces of card stock, and these will be in folders, free for the taking. One of the ideas is a version of fan fiction, and I've written up a quick blurb about it:


I'd be happy to take any other ideas people have for quick, simple-to-explain activities care-givers can do with children to foster a love of story-telling. 
Happy writing!

  1. This can be fun and helpful for your caregivers, Melanie, perhaps presented for the young ones as a game of "what if", too. My granddaughters (5 & 7) often imagine what kind of story to tell "if" something was changed. If realistic, trying to teach them that children all over the world live in different kinds of homes, the what if might be, what if you did have to help with animal chores on a farm? How would your lives be different? Then we say "once upon a time, a young girl lived on a farm, etc." & add information from there, the setting, a problem, other characters, etc. For me, it's a conversation to have that's fun imagination, but if you want writing, you could set it up for that, to make a short book with illustrations.

  2. Melanie,
    I think any opportunity to write thank you's to community members - firefighters, police, school staff - and providing small cards, envelopes, and addresses would be great. KINDNESS is so necessary in lives right now!

  4. I love this idea Melanie! Wondering if you could integrate technology by creating a question on a padlet that can be accessed by scanning a QR code? Maybe a writing related question such as. "What is the best compliment you ever got about your writing?"
