Writing, like many skills, typically improves with practice, so it is particularly important that students begin developing strong writing skills in early grades. This toolkit contains webinars that discuss engaging tools, classroom strategies, and activities to motivate your elementary students and develop their emerging skills. In addition to exploring several digital graphic organizers that can improve organization and pre-writing skills, you will also learn how to use a variety of digital storytelling tools to foster creativity and storytelling skills. Find out how to improve writing and encourage revisions with collaborative activities using Google Docs. You will also discover project ideas that align to Common Core, ways to publish studentsí work, and tools and tips to motivate young writers. If you have slightly older elementary students, you can hear ways to teach writing basics, such as parts of speech and active versus passive voice.

Teachers of language arts should already be aware of the basics of grammar, no matter what level!!!! However, this is useful for teachers of other subjects who must teach students to write explanations on all types of tests. I liked the idea of using color to emphasize the part of speech, etc being taught. I also liked the idea of online interactive quizzes for student practice.
