Welcome back to the Middle and High School (tweens, teens & moms) Creative Writing LinkUp! This past week got completely away from me and two of my boys’ posts didn’t even get added to the linky. Seems this mommy has so much going on I can hardly keep up. I know you understand and have felt the same way! But it’s a new week and here I am behind again. I really do need about a week to catch up… I need a teacher workweek please! Well, since that isn’t happening for a couple of months, I better get to the linky, or it won’t get done tonight either!
Thank you for coming back to the LinkUp! We are so excited to have this linkup for our children to have a creative writing outlet! And, of course, it is a place for us moms to sometimes share middle school and high school homeschool articles we write. We have had some extremely successful writing prompts and some that have been more challenging! As we move through our second month, I am so encouraged seeing how my own children’s writing is progressing! I hope you are seeing the same thing!
The co-hosts for this middle and high school linkup are:
Amy at Homeschool Encouragement
Clara at Clara’s Blue Moon (teen co-host)
DaLynn at Holy Splendor
Jennifer at Royal Little Lambs
Laura at Day by Day in Our World
Trish at Live and Learn Farm
Wendy at Homeschooling Blessings
guidelines for the linkup:
- The link-up will be open Monday through Friday.
- Please link directly to the url of your post (permalink).
- Please check back and visit at least one of student’s submissions and leave a comment for them. Our job is to encourage writing, their Mom (or Dad) will take care of the critique
- If you don’t mind, please place the button and code in your blog post so others can find out about the linkup also!
- That’s it!
and now it’s time for the link up!
Please be sure to check out their articles and leave encouraging words for them! If you are interested in joining us, linkup your article below. If you want to co-host, email me and let me know. Our focus for the co-hosting is for only moms of the teens, or the teens themselves to co-host.
This week’s topic is the ultimate in open-ended writing prompts! It is to write about any subject you are excited about and want to tell us about. Help us really understand why you love this topic, so give us lots of details and imagery! I am really looking forward to see what everyone writes about!
Next week’s topic is “What could you invent to make life better?“ Get creative… identify a problem, a gap, and describe an invention that could/would solve it.
