Need Help to Start a Story?
The Writing Prompts Workbook, Grades 9-10: Story Starters for Journals, Assignments and More - Bryan Cohen

This book is for Grades 9-10. I mentioned that I homeschool and that I will have a 9th grader next year. I went in search of something that would excite my kids into writing. It has a little bit of everything for writing prompts. As I am writing this, I have assigned one of the prompts and the 2 younger girls are making it happen. It should prove to be a very interesting day! 

 

If you have a child that you are homeschooling and need writing prompts (for those teenagers), this is such fun!

Read and Discover Dinosaurs
Dinosaurs (Discovery Kids Series) - Janine Amos,Christopher Collier,Alan Howe

Read and Discover Dinosaurs, by Janine Amos, is a non-fiction book about dinosaurs. It has information about their habitats, activities, and behaviors.  Lots of fun dinosaur trivia is included as well.  The book has realistic illustrations, a glossary, and even a quiz.  Any dinosaur lover will enjoy this book, but most likely it will be of interest to grades one - four. This would be a great book for an introduction to dinosaurs and a perfect addition to the classroom library that all students, but especially boys, will enjoy.  This is a great jumping off point for classroom research into the period or dinosaurs.  Kids would love illustrating a short dinosaur report or story, as well.

When Santa Lost His Ho! Ho! Ho!
When Santa Lost His Ho! Ho! Ho! - Laura Rader

In When Santa Lost His Ho! Ho! Ho!, by Laura Rader it's just a few days before Christmas when Santa realizes he can no longer say ho! ho! ho!  Everyone tries to help: Mrs. Claus, the doctor, and even the elves, but no one can bring it back.  When the news makes it's way around the world, the world responds.  Santa recieves gifts and letters from all over the world. When Santa sees all of the greetings he's received, he gets his ho ho ho back and Christmas is back on!

 

This is a fun book to read in grades K - 3 during the holidays.  It lends itself well to writing activities, such as writing a letter to Santa to make him feel better or writing a newspaper article about Santa's lost ho ho ho.  Students could decorate Santas to adorn the walls or the class Christmas tree. This book teaches a sweet lesson about caring about others and how showing we care can make things better for someone else. When Santa Lost His Ho! Ho! Ho!  is a great book to read to your class as part of a lesson or just for fun.
