For the last month or so I began a project to get kids reading and writing online. The project was KidWrite.net!
I started KidWrite to promote reading and writing in children as early as possible. I am a writing advocate and want to see children advance in the art and science of writing and reading. I truly believe using the computer for writing is a way to get children comfortable with a computer in a safe and educational way. I hope to see KidWrite being used by all schools where they promote writing and reading in the cloud.
KidWrite was designed to let kids start writing and expressing themselves through written content. All kids are encouraged to write and share their work with others on this site. This site will promote writing through sharing and writing contests. Kids can optionally just use the Journal feature to keep a private online journal where their writing and thinking skills can remain private.
Check it out and send in any feedback on the site or back to me on this blog. The site is pretty new and some kinks are still being worked out but I feel it is in good shape to publicize.
