    Weekly Project Challenges - Language Arts


    Sing songs, such as "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," "ABCs," or "You Are My Sunshine" while changing your child's diaper. If your child is potty training, sing while hand-washing after using the potty.


    Write the same letters of the alphabet multiple times on a piece of paper (you could start with the letters in your child's name). Help your child find matching letters and draw lines to connect them.

    Early Elementary (K - 3rd Grade):

    Write down 5 nouns (person, place, or thing), 5 verbs (action words), and 5 locations on slips of paper. Randomly choose 1 from each category; illustrate and write about what you have drawn. For example, you may have a star dancing at the playground or a roll of toilet paper running on the moon.

    Upper Elementary (4th - 6th Grade):

    Create a Blackout Poem: Find a print source you are allowed to write on, such as a newspaper or magazine. Using a marker or pen, circle words and phrases to create a poem. Black out (or cross out) the rest of the words so that your poem can be easily read..

    Middle School (7th - 8th Grade):

    Imagine an old hotel, and write about its most memorable guest. Consider what made them memorable. It could be a wild outfit, something they said, or something they did. You can write as much or as little as you like.

    High School:

    Brainstorm a character concept for a villain. Keep track of your thoughts in a word cloud/mind map, list, or other favorite format. Is your villain a comic book bad guy, a bank robber, a bully? Are they clever, paranoid, funny, messy, careful? How do they dress? What physical traits do they have?
