Improve your kids' writing this summer! In this writing activity, they use eight simple strategies to improve a narrative text, “The Water Balloon Fight.” Themed cards explain specific steps to success: varying sentence beginnings, varying sentence types, varying sentence lengths, choosing words for effect, using figurative language, using active verbs, adding details, and using transition words.
