    Im a big fan of writing exercises that not only test their knowledge and skills but use their imagination. they are so much more interested in the assignment when they have fun!

      Thanks Carmen! I agree. I recall when I had students write in journals they’d say, “What shall we write about today?” These often can help. And in the morning, they help ME get started with MY day too! Thanks for commenting!
