You know the ones...Those students who create the most amazing stories or writing pieces with little effort while others are expending major energy on just building five minutes of writing stamina.
If you do and you are looking for a way to engage and excite your prolific writers, have you seen this new website for student writers (ages 10-18), KidsAreWriters? I just came across it on Twitter last night and thought it looked pretty amazing.
They even just finished a virtual writing summer camp for students with daily writing prompts. (Oh, how I wish I knew about this website back in June...) As students complete their writing, they are able to submit it to the website via the comments section for feedback on a first come, first served basis. How fun!
So as I begin this new school year, I will be adding this website to my teaching toolbox to use to help me meet the needs of all of my student writers.
What tools or resources do you use to help differentiate your writing instruction?
