In middle school, students start to analyze literature in deeper and more complex ways. As their skills grow, teachers also expect them to write in a more involved style. Want to give your middle schooler a leg-up in her writing and literature skills? Next time you take a family trip, invite your child to make a special “labyrinth” travel diary. She'll practice separating narrative and commentary - an important skill which she'll continue to utilize through high school. At the same time, she'll create a special memento of a shared time together that the whole family will treasure. This is the perfect activity for your child to do during a summer trip, to keep her mind active and stave off those dreaded cries of "I'm bored!"
