Taking turns writing sentences to create a one-of-a- kind story provides focus and allows your mentee to take the lead.
- Bring writing paper and two pencils to your next meeting.
- Decide together, with your mentee, how many sentences your story will have.
- Choose a theme or topic for your story.
- Take turns writing the sentences, encouraging your mentee to be creative or to write about things from his/her day.
Writing together will bring you closer to your mentee, giving a window into their world.
