Engaging middle and high school students in their writing can be difficult. Some shake off writing as though it isn’t worth their time, and others assume they “are bad at it” and won’t give it a shot. Encourage your tweens and teens to enjoy writing with some fun and colorful handwriting paper and prompts!

On this handwriting paper you will find an Adventure Time inspired graphic of a dog. Perhaps your young writer can use their love of Adventure Time to spark a Fan Fiction or spin off story using this paper as inspiration. Or maybe your student would enjoy this paper with a completely different creative prompt like one of these:

  • Imagine that you have a best friend (and brother) who is a dog, just like Finn and Jake. Create a mini story for the two of you.
  • If you could have one special power, what would it be?

If you have very reluctant writers on your hands, then sentence starters can be motivational ways to spark ideas without fear of rejection or grammatical error. Simply read the beginning of a sentence to students, and tell them to finish the sentence and continue writing. You can turn this into a competitive activity by timing them for only two minutes. See who can write the most words in two minutes! To stay away from too much competitive spirit, tell students they should compete with themselves on the next quick write. Here are a few sentence starter ideas for middle and high school students:

  • It was not until that moment that he…
  • All they noticed were the flashing lights…
