The “Write” Stuff

This week’s Featured Content is all about writing. These great resources will help your students discover that  the pen – or the keyboard –  is mightier than the sword.

  • Elementary Pick: Celebration of Writing
    Help your students experience the thrill of being a published author and illustrator. When your students’ work is complete, don’t forget to include a Meet the Author night, so that their families can share in their moment of triumph!
  • Intermediate Pick: Writer’s Journal
    Readers make good writers. Help each of your students start and maintain a writer’s journal where they can collect items in the newspaper that capture their imagination. They can turn to this journal for writing ideas, story starters, and more.
  • Commencement Pick: Writing Whimsical Dialogues
    Over the course of two to three days, students will explore what makes good dialogue. This content lends itself to both group work and independent learning.
