Jenny Eather has put together a great website to help students with their writing. Jenny gives lots of info and support for the writing process with on-line writing, downloads and printables. She has text organizers for all types of writing. I was expecially interested in the poetry section and I was impressed with the many types of poetry. The email section gives an explanation and lots of samples. Every type of writing is included from informational to descriptive to persuasive and more. Check it out to see if you agree that this is one of the best writing sites around.
When you open the site by clicking on the title of the post or here, you will be directed to the home page. Make sure you spend a bit of time reading over the directions for using the site. Once you move to another section, the menu will be on the right side, small and in the middle. Click there to return to the home page.
I'm adding this site to the pages for grades 4/5 and 6/7/8 but check it out if you teach younger students. I think you'll find lots to use here.
