PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you need an independent writing activity for emergency sub plans, summer packets, blizzard bags, or enrichment?

This is an independent activity appropriate for middle schoolers, in and out of a traditional classroom setting. It asks students to write a how-to article. This is a great “free choice” activity to practice informational writing.

Here are some ideas for using this activity:

*Beach Bag (rising 7-8)*
Many teachers combat summer slide, or the skills students lose over a summer of not reading or writing. A beach bag is a take-home activity designed to reconnect students to their analysis skills from the school year.

*Blizzard Bag (6-7)*
Many districts are designating eLearning days as a way to keep students connected to the classroom in heavy winter weather. A blizzard bag is an independent activity that uses classroom skills. This activity is graded like a normal assignment.

*Enrichment (6-8)*
Some students need extra practice using some of these basic analysis skills. Use this activity in enrichment sessions.
