Writers Speak to Kids
I just wanted to quickly share a resource I recently came across called "Writers Speak to Kids." This resource would have been very helpful for me when I was teaching 2nd grade. I have had students who struggled with writing because they didn't know what to write about. It was hard for me to share ideas with students without telling them what to write. "Writers Speak to Kids" is a free resource on NBC Learn's website that contains interviews from award winning authors. Seventeen authors share their experiences as writers. They discuss the writing process and give advice to all writers. The videos are very inspiring and could be just what your students may need to spark some ideas for their own writing.
