October Writing Contest


Here’s the October Writing Contest!

I have been experimenting with creating badges, certificates and a sleek way to showcase student work using Google apps as I work on a Teacher’s Guide to School-Wide Writing Contests.

Feel free to submit!  I had no idea how  difficult is is to write a mystery story until I tried to write one!  I have such respect for the carefully crafted mysteries with such satisfying endings that my students have created in the past.  I wish I had saved some of their amazing work so I could share it with you!

If you’re looking for a good mentor text and lesson for this contest, check out Grandpa’s Teeth by Rod Clement on the Writing Fix website.

Happy Writing!
