This week, you have a choice of three different topics. Pick 1 topic and make sure you type 200 words. If you add images, you could have less words. For example.

Option 2: Write about your favorite Game(s).
Games! I’m sure if you think back to all the games you have played since you were a child, you can list several different types of games, depending on your age level and personality. Babies play peek-a-boo, toddlers love to play with shapes and toys that make lots of noise and music, pre-schoolers enjoy hide-and-seek, school age children like to play tag, all types of children and adults play sports, video games, board games, etc. Games have been around for ages and there is such a variety that everyone can have their very own favorite.
So, what’s your favorite game? Why do you enjoy it? How do you play it? What are the game rules? What’s the purpose of the game? How do you win in it? Is your fave game easy or difficult to learn, beat, master, win?
Option 3: Advice for future high school students (incoming freshmen or just to sophomores):
It’s May and your sophomore year of high school is coming to an end. Think back over your Freshmen and Sophomore year and all the lessons you have learned. I don’t just mean the educational lessons; I’m also referring to lessons about making friends, joining a sport, surviving final exam week, and utilizing educational technology. What have you learned? What do you wish you knew before you came to high school? All of your advice could be precious to the current junior high students who will soon embark on their high school journey. Sometimes, advice is taken more seriously when it comes from a peer close in age rather than someone much older.
You can use bullet points or numbers as long as your words are still high school level and definitely clear and descriptive enough that junior high students could learn from your advice and take it seriously.
