I just discovered an amazing site that will enrich your writing lessons. The site is called Make Beliefs Comix. The site is full of great activities for teachers. If your parents ask you for suggestions for summer work for their child, give them the link to this site. There are 250 printables that you can download for free. Here are a few of my favorites:
Assignment: Imagine you found the winning ticket to the state lottery. If you spent that money to improve the ailing school system, how would yo put these funds to use?
Assignment: Imagine that you came across a strange new special plant or animal, never seen before. How would you describe it to your friends? Give it a name.
Assignment: write the dialogue for a comic strip. There are several comic strips to choose from.
Students can also make their own comic strip online.
