This student activity page provides information and step-by-step guidance for several different kinds of writing. Writing is difficult to teach and some of the ideas here are creative and motivating for kids. Learn about myth writing, descriptive writing, news writing, writing book reviews, biographies, mysteries, poetry and more! Divided into teacher resources, student activities, books and authors, and "connect" (a section that enables you to interact with other teachers/classes of students), this site has some nifty nuggets that are quite useful, depending on what you want to teach. While registering is free and allows you to interact with others in their registered group, you do not have to register to take advantage of most of what the site offers.
In the ClassroomWith short articles and encouragement from authors that students have read (such as Virginia Hamilton, Jane Yolen, and Jean Lowry Nixon), you can easily encourage students to write anything from mystery to myth. Use your class blog to share student writing in a moderated space, if your school policies permit.
