Are you ready to have some fun?
You have a few tasks to do today.
1. Daily Check-In: Sign in below in the comment section. Include your first name, age, location (city, state, country), and tell me what you like to write. I am interested to see who lives furthest away from Colorado Springs, Colorado.2. Make sure you sign up for our free membership. The “Join KIDS ARE WRITERS” button is on the upper right side of this page. KIDS ARE WRITERS can also be found on Facebook. Follow our page (click here) to get notices of every article we post.
3. Take a tour of our website. Get to know the coaches. Read some articles. Try some prompts. I want to you be familiar with the website because it will be a useful tool for you.
4. Gather your writing materials. Read “The Writer’s Briefcase” article by Carrie Charley Brown to get ideas. You can find her article by clicking the link here or by finding it on the home page.
Writing Prompt of the Day
Write the following words in your notebook…
I am a writer.
Then, journal about the time you first realized you were a writer. How old were you? Journal about why you love to write, what you like to write about, and what your hopes and dreams are for writing. This is an important memory for you. Someday, you will want to look back and remember.
