Activities to Celebrate the Summer Olympics

August 3, 2016

The Summer Olympics start a week from Friday! It’s an excellent opportunity to link writing and critical thinking skills practice to an event that everyone in the family can enjoy together.

Below are a list of activities to do before, during, and after the Olympics are over on August 21. They can be in the form of discussion, note taking, or even formal paragraphs and essays.

6 Creative Summer Projects To Enjoy With the Kids

June 16, 2016

Last month, I shared planning tips on how to avoid summer slide in academic skills.

But it’s summer, and we all want to relax!

It's time to take a break from being the teacher and telling the kids what to do.

Instead, be a student WITH your kids!

From happy students:

“I learned that I can indeed write, with a little help.”
~Carson F., AZ

"I do not enjoy writing; it doesn't come naturally to me, so when my mom told me that I was starting this new writing program called Essay Rock Star to prepare me for college, I cringed. I thought it would be like all the other ones I have used before, but with Essay Rock Star and Ms. Iatridis I have improved my writing ability and don't dread writing papers anymore. She does a great job of showing you the step-to-step process of writing a paper and how to improve your writing ability." 
 ~Ian S., OH 
From happy parents:
"All of my children are voracious readers, and I had hoped my son would pick up formal writing just as easily as his older sister. Unfortunately, before signing up for Essay Rock Star, he could barely write a paragraph, and had made it his mission in life to prove that it was possible to succeed without writing! He has just finished his first essay, and I am thrilled with his progress! Ms. I's interesting video lessons, clear directions, and gentle encouragement, have helped my son's confidence blossom. I have no doubt he will enter high school prepared to handle any writing assignment that comes his way! Thank you!"
  ~Jenica Webster, NC
“I liked the format of breaking writing assignments into steps and providing feedback for each part of the assignment. 
 ~Judith Sharkey, Goodyear, AZ
