How To Create Interesting Essay Titles For 7-Year-Olds


7-year-olds are assigned to write every day, so they can learn how to become independent writers. These are usually the students in either first or second grade, which is very much the same since the writing standards for these age groups are rather similar. In first grade, children learn how to write brief expository descriptions of familiar objects, places, people, or experiences and brief narratives about real and imaginary events. In second grade, students write for the same purposes. However, their compositions are more essay-like at this level. Second-graders know how to provide descriptive details, and their papers consist of a beginning, middle, and ending. Whichever grade a 7-year-old is in, he or she should not only write essays on a variety of descriptive and narrative topics but also create good titles for them.

Creating an effective title is a challenging task for an early writer. Parents should help their kids in this process, and the following tips are likely to come in handy:

  • Be simple and clear.
  • A complicated title will look strange in a composition by a 7-year-old. Give preference to the same words and phrases that have been used in the paper. Avoid obscure words (which are not necessarily obscure to a dad but are likely to be unfamiliar to a child). Understandable titles are interesting for kids.

  • Be brief.
  • Use a minimal number of words to name the paper. The title length should not exceed 10 words, and, sometimes, 3 to 5 words are enough to reflect the essence of the work.

  • Be creative.
  • With a creative approach, the essay title of a 7-year-old will be interesting and original. It is unlikely that a first grader will manage to do the task, but the students in second grade may be successful in their attempts. In any case, the assistance of adults is a must. Parents may add humorous notes to the titles of their kids, include catchy phrases, or just rephrase the rough title drafts of early writers to make them sound more original.
