For those who like to write, PROMPTS can be a lot of fun. The sentence starters are creative, and the questions and other motivators offered when writers get stuck can lead to some unique twists and turns in a story. Those who don't like writing, however, may find themselves bored by the prompts and frustrated by having to type on a tiny keyboard.

Some prompts may confuse writers rather than provide inspiration. For example, student writers may not know what it means to "draw out a transition" or may have trouble with a prompt such as "focus on the next word" when they don't know what their next word will be. Using terms for all levels of writers may make it more engaging.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
