Creative Writing with PIC-LITS
See the full PicLit at PicLits.com
PIC-LITS is a great way to encourage your child to try writing some poetry. You don't have to sign in to play, but you must if you want to save or share your work. It took me about ten seconds.
First you choose a photo from a scrolling line-up. Then the site encourages you either to drag and drop some suggested words onto your "canvas", or create your own.
This is one of those great web resources that are motivating because they're fun. The bonus is, kids are using reading, writing and creative skills, instead of having fun with passive entertainment like TV.
