Writing Prompt

Our students are headed to middle school next year. They are meeting with the middle schools' guidance people in the next week. We would like to do a writing prompt about going to middle school or imagine the first day of middle school. Does anyone have a prompt or could help with the wording? Our writing focus in descriptive.

I would first show them what imagery is and then encourage them to use that in their papers. They should be encouraged to use descriptive details so the reader can imagine how they feel, what they see, what they hear, etc.

I am probably not the best creator of elementary school/middle school prompts but maybe something like this:

"Imagine your first day of middle school. Describe the way you felt, what you saw, what you heard, etc." Make sure your story helps the reader imagine how you felt.

or

"Describe your feelings about going to middle school. What are your fears and concerns? What are you most excited about?" Be sure to use details so the reader can truly imagine how you feel.

You have come up with two great writing prompts. I think I will use the second one! We have been working on writing imagery all year. I am teaching at school with a large population of Hispanics. Imagery is a difficult concept but we are improving!
