Summer Learning: Writing Activities for Kids, Tweens & Teens

 
What did you do when you finished your work early and the rest of the class was still working? My teacher passed out worksheets or the classic word search.  I rather liked completing word searches.  Little did I know that there were plenty other constructive things my teachers could have had me doing.  For example, write.  In the near future I would have to put together essays for college letters and scholarships.  Practicing as often as possible sure would have been helpful. 
We’ve done reading and math this summer that’s for sure.  Social studies and science have even been on the summer learning schedule.  But writing is a thing that I must say we have to work on more.  I am using these sites to help everyone, the kiddos and the teen!

 

Happy Learning!
