AWL at Home

826DC’s After-School Writing Lab isn’t meeting right now, but you can still keep the fun going! Here are some optional resources that students and families can enjoy from home.

Shake it Out

We do this activity each day to check in with one another and share how our days are going.


AWL features daily writing prompts, just like these. Write on!

Reading Log

Students can use this reading log sheet to keep track of what they read, what they learned from it, and more.

Free Audiobooks

Listening to books can be just as great as reading them. Here’s a list of free audiobooks, including titles that we know AWL students love.
