The kids are back in school, and the homework assignments are flowing in full force again. There are so many subjects to cover in the evenings, and parents have so little time to lend a helpful hand. Pencils, Words & Kids will help your kids to focus on what's important in making their story stand out, and how to achieve the essay they need. It's most beneficial to give kids ideas and let them think through these and mull them over to come up with their own work, rather than you taking on their projects as your own! Using the 81 entries of this app, kids will be amazed at all the items they can include in their writing. In addition, there are 7 filters which include:

- Be a Reader First
- How & why to write
- How to use this app
- Kids speak about writing
- Prompts
- Responding to creative writing
- Sharing

There are helpful and understandable prompts with which kids can easily identify. These can be used over and over again. Some important brainstorming and writing techniques kids will learn in this app are as follows:

- Permission to be creative
- Be a reader first
- Take my character, please
- What to write about
- Slow it down
- "Dialogue"
- Purely Visual
- Advice from Kids

Give your kids a chance to improve their writing and vocabulary skills. Yes, it's often difficult to come up with a topic, but once you have some ideas presented to you, it's easy to get the rest of the essay put into place. Writing need not be a chore or headache any more with this helpful, instructional app.
COOL CONCLUSION: "Let kids learn for themselves just how much fun it is to write an engaging first-class story using the helpful techniques in Pencils, Words & Kids!
