Writing with Writers


I came across a great site for kids today. It's called Writing with Writers. It's a Scholastic website where kids can get expert advice on writing in a variety of genres by successful, published authors. For example, mystery writer Joan Lowery Nixon presents a short mystery of hers for your child to read. She then provides some writing tips for your young author, before taking him through the writing and revision process step-by-step. He can then publish his story online. Why not check it out? Who knows, your child may be the next Agatha Christie or Erle Stanley Gardner!

Theresa, what a great site. I don't think it is ever too early to instill the love of writing and reading into children. I will be passing this on to my teacher friends as well.

Thanks Theresa... Carma is right - it is a never too early to teach a child about reading or writing.

I will share this with my friends who have young children and being a grandma will remember for my grandson.

I love your blog, and after being away from the site a few days, I can see how beautifully it is developing. Great job with excellent information for parents.
