With Mother’s Day coming up, I’m sure most of you are thinking about how you can show your appreciation for your mother’s hard work and support over the years. One way to show your appreciation can be by writing your feelings down in a card or even in the form a poem. This is a brilliant way to show your mother how much you care and appreciate everything she has done for you. We know it can be difficult to put your feelings down on a piece of paper, so have created these 35 Mother’s Day writing prompts to celebrate mother’s everywhere. We also suggest you take a look at our post on 10 books for mother’s day to get some more inspiration.
For the reluctant writer, practising writing at home or with a tutor, on top of schoolwork, can seem like hard work. However, there are many things you can do at home to help your child improve their writing skills without actually making them “write”. And best of all—they’re fun!
Kids are truly amazing creatures. They are so full of curiosity, ideas and thoughts on life that they can make boredom disappear from any situation. However, from a very young age, kids are being put in boxes, taught how to think and stripped of their creativity. But if you want to nourish your child’s creativity, there are things you can do every day to help them out.
Reading is not a set of remote skills that children learn when they go to school. Learning is the process which starts after birth. During childbirth, a baby’s cerebrum is as yet creating and the encounters that we give decide how the mind is produced. Literacy activities are more interesting for baby. The great foundation of literacy or fun literacy activities for babies are talking, singing, playing sound and word games, reading, writing and drawing. Literacy helps your baby to learn about the value of books and stories and helps to learn differences between ‘real’ and ‘make-believe’. But literacy skills do not just develop overnight. If we start to practice literacy from the early and build on a child’s experience as they grow, they will not only be able to read and write, but also love to read and write.
We were recently approached by the Tarang Rawat, the author of Becoming Beautiful book and were lucky enough to interview her about her new project. Tarang is on a mission to empower girls to be confident, strong and independent. Do you feel that your child is worried about their appearance? If yes, don’t worry you’re not alone. It is becoming more common than ever that children as young as 8 years old can start to have feelings of self-doubt and even concerns about how they look. They might have questions about their body image, hair or even skin colour. And wonder how can I fit in or why don’t I look like her? If this is something that your daughter is worried about, then the Becoming Beautiful book is the perfect gift to give.
