Looking for new ways to encourage reading and writing? Try tapping
into a fun theme. Star Wars. Harry Potter. Marvel Super Heroes. Look for
events around town that are part of your child's/teen's favorite genre.
Example: Maplestone Academy is a Harry Potter themed event that happens
once a month for a year where your child could immerse themselves in
the world of Harry Potter for that one day each month. There they will
be challenged to problem-solve, learn bits of creative science, practice their reading and writing and comprehension... all within the setting of something totally fun!
Example: Montreal ComicCon is a huge science fiction/comic.fantasy
convention that happens in July. Get your child/teen involved but
reading about their favorite characters, learning how to cosplay,
meeting actors, artists and writers in person! What a great way to
inspire young learners!
