These writing summer skill-building and retention activities for middle school students are perfect for summer writing programs, summer writing camps, for use in summer school, or for take-home summer writing practice. This summer writing packet includes a choice board of 9 skills-based summer writing prompts, activities, and a collection of complementary summer writing worksheets.

Students can choose from summer writing prompts like:

Sparklers or Fireworks?

Write an opinion paragraph that tells if you think sparklers or fireworks are better. Be sure to use at least 3 opinion words throughout your paragraph and provide specific details that supports your opinion.

Compare and Contrast Book Characters

After reading a chapter book, choose two characters and write descriptions of them. Use this graphic organizer first to help you write a strong, descriptive paragraph for each. Then, add an additional paragraph that compares and contrasts each character.

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

Design a newspaper-summer edition style! Read through this tip sheet to create something special. Be sure to add news and updates about not just your own summer, but your friends’ as well!
