NaNoWriMo teachers: The 2014 classroom noveling kits are here! If you haven’t tried NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) with your students yet, I highly recommend it! It is the most empowering, exhilarating, motivating activity you could possibly dream of bringing to the classroom. I have done it for four years with my fourth through sixth grade students, and I look forward to it with excitement every November. It comes with free lesson plans and support for teachers, but it is flexible enough to fit in with your own teaching style. Visit the Young Writers Program website for more information. As they say, the world needs your stories!
