They are presented ready to be photocopied and mounted on 8x5 index cards, often with a lively photo, illustration, or a piece of virtual realia - maps, ads, forms, articles. The cards can then be kept in a Fundex, a standard index card file box full of fun writing inspirations. That way they are easy to store and easy for you or your students to flip through looking for ideas. The topics are both entertaining and simple to understand, so that students working on their own will want to take on the challenge and write. Among the 19 fun activity types are *Write a Sentence about This Picture, *Response Writing-The Daily Paper, *Write an Email, *Write Instructions, *Finish the Story, *Reflective Writing-Memories, *Writing Stories-Superstitions, *Writing Anecdotes-Proverbs, and *Help! The Advice Column. Fundex tasks involve the use of whole language in individual, pair, and small group work. Though primarily writing tasks, they may also include discussion and planning, information gathering, research, and reading. Ideal for tutorials, learning centers, and libraries.
