    Bees are buzzing. The AC is humming. The pool is calling. And the last thing your kiddo feels like doing is pulling out a pen and paper. Yet, writing is definitely one of those muscles that atrophies when not stretched. Therein lies a lazy, hazy summertime dilemma.

    As with most things, the key to convincing a student to do something he or she doesn’t necessarily want to do is...to put some FUN in it! The following are four ideas for incorporating writing into a busy (or not-so-busy) summer vacation.
