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 her special knowledge and cinematic opinions to good use? By creating a Family Movie Guide, you can help her develop evaluative writing skills, which happen to be a key part of fourth grade learning, and also keep track of some of her 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, it will also help your child polish her writing skills.
