My DS 7 yo loves drawing, just anything from aliens to submarines etc. I wonder who to bring this element for developing his English writing/ Comprehension skills. I tried storyboard, tried drawing images to the text that was read...anything other activities that I could do please? Thank you

My ds loves drawing too. He does a lot of doodling with some captions, or write comics.
Also makes extensive list of things with drawing(mainly game monsters/weapons/armors) with added stats, explanations in details, etc., to make his own strategy books.
He does draw image of his imagination(again, mainly game related) and write an original story about it.

Search the internet for Pie Corbett, Talk for writing. It’s very popular in primary schools! Your son might enjoy story boarding.
