Journal writing is important in helping students grow as a writer, but I’ve often found that my students just don’t want to tell me about their weekend, their favorite food, or just anything about themselves!
Wacky Writing solves that! It gives students the chance to practice the all important writing skills without being bored! I get to assess my students’ skills and laugh while doing so.
I’ve assigned wacky writing prompts for homework or as a “Work on Writing” station. Whatever will work best for you – just get your students to write!
