    Wonderfully creative and varied activities get your children involved in the Middle Ages! Carve an individualized signet ring, create an illumination, learn all about castles and keeps, and how they were attacked and defended using embrasures, battering rams, siege towers, trebuchets, catapults, and siege bows. Then, plan a feast in your Great Hall, maybe using trenchers for dining plates! Of course, no activity book would be complete without the fashioning of period clothing, complete with head gear, depending on your station in life. Or become a knight and create armor and jousting lance. Make a marketplace banner, join a guild, the possibilities are endless (well, not quite, there are only 32 different projects here)!

    Some students are natural story tellers; their creative-writing juices flow freely. Then you have some kids who need a small nudge, or an idea to work with, and then they open up; yet others draw a total blank if you tell them to write an original story. This book is a tool for parents and teachers to guide all types of young writers in drawing out an original tale from them. This book contains 48 prompts for writing stories & essays, but these are more than your typical sentence or two. Your student is given a starter paragraph, a setting or situation, followed by a series of questions that lead to sentences that lead to paragraphs. Idea prompts are there too, like asking you to draw a picture of a scene. Then you are asked to get more specific with directives like why questions and asking you to write a dialogue. Editing tips help you refine your writing, and a literary and screen tie-in are suggested that goes along with the theme. What an interesting tie-in! These introduce students to other writings/films containing similar ideas as their prompts, teach them to observe literary characteristics, and highlight other interesting elements in stories. Here is an example for you called "Waiting Room." To start: Not much happens in the bus station in this small town in Iowa. Both the place and the people waiting for their buses to arrive or depart appear unremarkable. It's a sleepy place where nothing ever seems to happen. Questions: How does the room smell? What color is the floor? Describe the calendar on the wall. How comfortable are the chairs? How well-lit is the room? One woman is reading in an unusual manner. What is she reading and how is she doing it? Etc. Short & Sweet: Write a description of this place in one long sentence. Try using dashes or a semi-colon to extend the sentence. Starting Up: Write three 90-word first-person action stories that start in this boring place. Here are 7 possible beginnings: 1. The woman who is reading starts tearing up her book. 2. A mime enters the room and starts performing. Etc. Write Away: Pick the opening you like best & develop it into a longer story. Try to capture the irony of this unlikely place as the setting for such an outlandish story. Make sure the setting is important, you have involved minor characters, and picked the right narrator, etc. Read to Write: Consider reading "On the Late Bus" by Susan Enberg. Notice how a seemingly inconsequential conversation between passengers prompts a troubled girl to reconsider her life. On the Screen: Check out the academy award winning comedy "It Happened One Night" starring Claudette Colbert & Clark Gable. Enjoy the comic contrast of the glamorous socialite against the unglamorous world of bus travel in the 1930s. The end of the book contains fifty more one-line writing prompts, and some student samples with comments. A diverse collection of well-thought-out prompts that encourages students to develop their writing ability while practicing the "Seven C's of good writing:" clear, composed, correct, concise, convincing, compelling, and clever.
