With one week left of school, it’s not too late to write!
Ask students to write a letter! To who?
- to a student entering their class next year telling them what to expect
- to next year’s teacher sharing accomplishments or anything they want the teacher to know about them
- to you, their current teacher, sharing their learning and memories from the year
Another engaging writing task? A summer bucket list! Encourage students to research activities within your city or community including prices. Challenge them to make a list of ten things they would like to do, half of which are free.
To promote summer writing, provide students with an envelope addressed to you at the school. Invite students to write to you over the summer highlighting their adventures.
If you have older students who love to write, suggest one of the websites within this link: http://www.readbrightly.com/6-great-websites-teen-writers/
So… enjoy fun day and the end of year celebration, but in between, find a few moments to write!
