More Fun than a Book (Almost)
If you're tired of reading books, try sitting in a LEGO castle -- now that's fun. If that doesn't work for you, try some of these fun alternatives. (You may not find any of these suggestions actually fun. But compared to, say, an analysis of my writing process, these things count as "Fun Stuff.")
My fun(ish) offerings are:
Let's start here, with the funnest of my fun stuff. Keep in mind that these are not my jokes. I did not make them up. So don't blame me if you don't like them.
Here you'll find probing questions, a word search, and a crossword puzzle to follow up your reading of 28 Tricks for a Fearless Grade 6.
Here you'll find snazzy descriptions of several phobias and a quiz to see if you're paying attention. (From my Walking Backward and 28 Tricks for a Fearless Grade 6 research.)
Here you'll find links to .pdfs you can download or print. There are Discussion Questions, an art activity, a crossword, and a word search. So get busy.
Movies are always fun. Sadly, this 1-minute movie is not as fun as most cinema offerings. Still, more fun than a comprehension test. Worth popping corn for? What isn't?
Here you'll find info on ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses. (From my My Cat Isis research.)
Here you'll find chipper tips on surviving zombie attacks, desert adventures, deadly tornadoes, and winter wilderness wanderings. Plus grade six. (Very loosely related to 26 Tips for Surviving Grade 6.)
Visit my Writing Tips pages for all sorts of suggestions to help you get your own books and stories from your head to the page.
Here you'll find links to .pdf files you can download or read online to see which of my novels grabs you. (Or skip that page and just click on a following title to read the first chapter of Walking Backward, 26 Tips for Surviving Grade 6, 28 Tricks for a Fearless Grade 6, or All Good Children.)
