Websites and Apps That Support Writing Development

Dear Readers,

I’m always looking for resources to assist teachers, as well as parents/caregivers.  It occurred to me that in previous posts I focused mainly upon reading resources.  We all realize that both reading and writing support a child’s/student’s literacy development.  Therefore, I’ve listed some intriguing writing websites and apps, and plan to try them out in the next two weeks.  I’ll share my reviews afterwards.

Please note that some of the sites listed offer a free trial, but then you must sign up.  They are, however, not costly.  So, stay tuned to my more in-depth review of their usefulness.

Happy Writing!

Joanne
