Fun Writing Prompts for Middle Schoolers— Middle school writing skills are essential to building a solid educational foundation in children. To help reinforce the habit of regular writing it is essential to show kids that writing in school can be fun. Journaling is one way to do so. Journal writing is a fabulous way to reinforce your child’s middle school writing practice because it is creative, versatile and easy to implement into lesson plans.
There is much evidence to support the fact that journal writing will help children to develop their skills of explanation, to improve their writing, and to solve problems in interesting ways. As your kids write, they’ll learn things about themselves they never knew before, and they just might even become fascinated by the way the words and ideas come together on paper.
