Last week was my son's spring break and since he spent a fair amount of the week with his grandparents, there were few deceptively educational activities happening at my house. So I'm finally getting around to publishing this old blog post about how I enticed my son into writing his kindergarten teacher a letter last summer.
It's perfect for a hesitant writer or a child that needs a jump start writing.

I knew getting a soon-to-be first-grader to write a letter without a major meltdown or cascades of “I can’t do it” was going to take nothing short of magic.
I had so much fun when we ___________.
I hope I don’t forget __________________.
My son gave it a pretty good shot, though.
