Everybody loves the glamour and excitement of Hollywood movie award nights. But with a fourth-grade writer in the house, there’s no need to wait until the next Oscars. In fact, if you’re like lots of families, you’ll see many films throughout the year, especially during the summer and on school holidays.
And, because not everyone in your family circle may be as aware of the latest blockbusters as your movie-going child, why not put their special knowledge and cinematic opinions to good use? By creating a Family Movie Guide, you can help them develop evaluative writing skills, which happen to be a key part of fourth-grade learning, and also keep track of some of their favorite (and not-so-favorite) movies.
In a few easy steps, you and your child can create a handy reference tool that everyone from grandparents to family and friends can consult. Not only will it be a cherished piece of memorabilia, but it will also help your children polish their writing skills.
