By Carol Simpson. If a little writing every day is the surest way for students to improve their writing skills, then teachers need idea banks for mini-lessons that can jump-start no-fuss writing activities - and this book supplies almost 200, one for every day of the school year. Main themes are celebrations, seasons, animals, fantasy, and autobiography. Each mini-lesson comes on a reproducible handout accompanied by a page of teacher set-up that suggests a reading from popular children's literature, plus 12 more lessons that target specific grammar skills.
By Linda Polon. Open-ended story starters make writing stories seem like irresistible fun. "Look at the picture and write a short story with three or more sentences. Write a title for your story. Do not forget to color the picture!" Actual directions are a bit more specific - some add word banks, some require using commas or an exclamation point, some supply a first or last sentence, some suggest writing the story as a postcard to a friend - to challenge young writers in engaging ways. Each book offers more than 80 story starters.

By Carol Simpson. To motivate students to practice writing every day, this book explains how teachers can guide students to write daily news reports that will then be "published" in the classroom and read by other students. Two other daily writing lessons are also explained: daily journals and "experience stories." All the guided writing activities begin with the teacher modeling the writing process while getting student input for the contents of the writing; gradually, as the weeks go by, students take more and more ownership of the writing, which eventually becomes less formulaic (based at first on reproducible handouts) and more personal and creative.
