I've gathered the articles at The Book Chook about teaching kids to write  into one place. You'll find advice from authors to young writers, tips and prompts for young writers, and advice for parents etc. I hope you might find some of this useful for your own children/students. http://www.thebookchook.com/2015/02/teaching-kids-to-write.html

Learning about how to use punctuation is important for writers (and readers). So why not use pasta to make it hands-on?

Do you have a student who likes to read or needs to read more? Is he/she ready to start learning how to write a composition? BOOK REPORTS encourages and develops these skills by making any reading adventure become a successful writing adventure.

Yes! Children don't learn to write by osmosis. They need writing role models!

"[T]eachers provided effective modeling for me to emulate. I wish to make perfectly clear that they certainly didn't do my work for me. Together, rather, we worked toward my overall mastery."
