Pre-Class Activity Ideas

Ready? Summer writing was never more enjoyable!

Middle School Writing ProjectsEmbrace the power of in-person saturation in a topic! Go to the ACTUAL brick and mortar library (I know!) and:

  • Browse—pull books related to the topic.
  • Explore—move two shelves over—what’s there? Two shelves down?
  • Immerse yourself for the afternoon. Curiosity sparked!

Expository Essay: Exploratory and PersuasiveControversy is everywhere! Teens don’t know it’s the foundation of persuasive essay writing—you do!

  • Type in a topic like “sports” into a search engine. What comes up? 
  • NOW, type in “sports + controversy” — and stand back!
  • Search for the controversy in every topic: rock climbing, Fortnite, chewing gum. 
  • Proceed to Big Juicy Conversations galore!

Movie Discussion ClubTime to snuggle up with our movie selection! Make the experience inviting for your kids! 

  • During your next trip to the store, pick up different types of popcorn.
  • Do a taste testing at home and find your favorite!
  • By the way, your kids will remember this… FOREVER.

Penning the PastInvestigate the pop culture of days past! 

  • Choose a time period and place your kids are interested in.
  • Research the most popular movies and books from that time period.
  • Grab a playlist of songs that were hits—the new soundtrack to your summer!
  • Hit the thrift store for bell bottoms, bandannas, costume jewelry—groovy!

Get the biggest bang for your buck! Prime the pump with our engaging activity ideas, take a class, then print out class PDFs to continue the writing activities at home. 

You’ve got a whole summer full of fun and writing waiting for you!
