Strong Verbs Improve Great Stories

Help your child's writing to spring into action with fierce verbs! To improve your child’s story, change verbs like went to shuffled and switch came to wandered, or use plopped instead of a simple word like sat. Strong verbs create more meaning, give a clearer picture of the action, and make for a more interesting story.
