Writing Lesson of the Month Network

...sharing thoughtful, mentor text-inspired lessons your students will love!

Once younger students learn to play with verbs, their written voices start really taking shape.  Verbs truly are the engines of sentences.  Dull verbs and lazy verbs (like got) need to be avoided by students who are working on improving voice through verb use.

  

There's such potential for improved writing when dealing with word choice and verbs.  But how do you help young students to develop word choice skills center around this important part of speech?

 

Our Verb Game for Kids Word Prompt is really popular at WritingFix, especially with the little guys.  We're trying to improve the prompt by adding short ideas for verb lessons that teachers can use before students work on a draft inspired by the word game we've featured.

 

If you have a clever way you inspire young writers to better use verbs, please share it with us in the "Reply to This" box below.  If we end up posting over at the WritingFix site, we will send you a complimentary copy of one of the NNWP Print Guides as our way of saying THANKS for sharing back with our WritingFix Project.

 

If you don't see the "Reply to this" box below, it's an easy fix.  Simply scroll to the top of this screen and look for the "+Join Primary Writers" link near the uppoer right-hand corner of this page.  Once you click on that, the "Reply to this" box will appear.

 

Thank you for considering sharing back with our site!
