A Few Writing Resources

Story Starters 
Free Illustrated Story Starters from the Young Writers Workshop are useful for promoting writing stories.  Each story starter opens up as a PDF and is then printable.  Here is a screen shot of one of the story starters.

 A Thesaurus
Our students can struggle with using common words over and over again.  I found this printable thesaurus which helps students to find similar words for commonly overused words such as bad, happy, funny and sad.  This would be a great resource for any elementary student.  

 Be a Reporter
Here is an interactive for writing a news article.  This interactive is easy to use.  There is no option to save your work or print, however, using Print Screen would be easy enough.  I have previously explained how to print screen here.

Write with a Quill Pen
Here is a simple and fun interactive.  Students can write with a quill pen.  They can choose an ink color and also print their writing.
