Just Exquisite! Take 1

Exquisite PromptTeachers who are looking for an easy way to add some fun writing to their curriculum will love The Exquisite Prompt monthly writing challenge from Reading Rockets and AdLit.org. Every month, from October 2009 – June 2010, two new writing prompts, inspired by a variety of children’s authors, are released. Some of the inspirational authors so far have been Jon Scieszka, Katherine Paterson, and this month’s Natalie Babbitt and Nikki Grimes. The prompts are accompanied by author bios and on-line resources to help with the writing.  Not only do the students get the opportunity to learn about authors, explore new avenues of writing, but they also get the chance to win great prizes such as an autographed copy of one of the author’s books. This week I had the opportunity to work with two different classes on this writing challenge. Read my next post to find out how this worked out!
