Take a Break with Purpose!
I don't know about you but when summer comes I am ready for a break. BUT you may not want your kids sitting in front of electronics all the time or forget what they've learned throughout the school year.
Try a summer writing adventure that uses hands on activities like role playing being a spy during the Revolutionary War or pretending to be a soldier then writing about the adventure in a relaxed manner. Take the kids to a reenactment for a visual to stimulate ideas for stories!
Or an ocean adventure by becoming ocean animals and creating an under-the-sea community like the movie Finding Nemo. Write about the Shark Brigade that saves Shell City from the Electric Eels or perhaps the crab cup-cake baker who wants to win the Barnacle Bake-off.
The Old Schoolhouse says, "I used this book with my nine-year-old daughter, Mercie. She has always loved to write stories, but her stories lack organization and structure. She eagerly began with “Ocean Adventures”, and as the cover says, she really dove in! I look forward to using more of these books!"
Look through our Bookstore for Specials and more exciting writing adventures.
