Middle School Language Arts

Last week, we wrapped our informational essay writing and turned our attention to fiction.  Students worked hard to create characters, conflicts, and plot structure, and on November 1st, we dove into the National Novel Writing Month.  NaNoWriMo is a fun, world wide writing experience that challenges writers to compose a novel in 30 days!  Check out nanowrimo.org, or ywp.nanowrimo.org for the young writer’s project.  For NaNoWriMo, each student set a personal word count goal, and are writing every day, in and out of class to meet those goals.  Some students even set goals as high as 50,000 words!  It is fun to hear everyone talking about their stories and characters.  Ask your middle schooler about their novel today!
