Essay writing and tweens . . . Does your middle school homeschool student choke when it’s time to do writing exercises? Do they prefer dental work to essay writing assignments?
Mine does! Well, he did until we developed a system where he could easily see and understand exactly what was expected of him.
When the essay process is broken down into easy to follow chunks – those chunks become much easier to swallow.

Dental Work vs. Essays
The idea of conquering a required essay can be completely overwhelming to some students. It’s been my experience that boys especially tend to run away screaming. But, when they are presented with the fact that 30 minutes of their time is required and that they only need to fill in a few blanks and work down a simple checklist – well, that suddenly becomes much more digestible.
We’ve created a free essay writing printable pack for you that includes:
- simple worksheet for brainstorming and choosing titles
- checklist for an easy step by step process that your middle schooler can go through on their own
- page for rough draft
- easy editing tools for proofing
Give them the confidence they need and simple step by step instructions to make essay writing pain-free!
