Creative Kid Central Is Go!

If you frequent this blog then you've probably noticed my recent fascination with making creative writing prompts for kids.  Since I now have a small collection of prompts I figured I should make a place on the interwebs where they can be easily stored, sorted and downloaded.  So over the weekend I put together a little website that I call "Creative Kid Central."  Trust me, it's gonna be big (at least in my own mind.)

So yeah, I made a website.  Click HERE to check it out.  And stay tuned to this blog for announcements and updates on new C.K.C. content.

(PS: I built the C.K.C. using Google Sites.  It's a nice little system.  Pretty easy.  And nice looking to boot.  I'd recommend it to anybody looking to build a free website.)

Creative Writing Prompt For Kids

So, Tiff (my wife) is teaching 5th grade this year and she loves it.  She's used a couple of my old writing prompts  already with her class this year and they love them.  So I've decided to do some more.  Here is the latest:

PS:  When I get about a dozen of these together I'm going to collect them on a website so that teachers all over the world can use them (I can dream can't I?)  So, if you're a teacher feel free to use this, and anything else I've posted on this blog, in your classroom.  

PPS:  If you're a creative type (author/illustrator) and you want to make one of these creative writing prompts for the website just let me know in the comments.  I'll gladly take volunteer work.
