Kids Write Text Types  

This app investigates various writing genres, or text types and provides the structure, an example and planner for each one.  The user is then provided with many writing prompts, or ideas for each of the text types.  View a video cast to see how it works!

  1. I like the look of this. What would be a good app to annotate over the planners?

    • Hi Paul,
      Thanks for your feedback. To annotate over the planner pages, I would take a screen shot and then use an app like Skitch, Notability, iAnnotate, Show Me or Explain Everything. There are probably many more. You could record your lesson on Explain Everything and save it somewhere for your students to access at a later date.

      I am sure that there are many other annotating apps, and would love to hear what others have used successfully.

      I would love to know how it goes.
      Thanks

  2. Hi, well done on the app. I have been recommending your app to lots of teachers. Your text type examples are great but they are challenging for my students to read. Could you include examples that range in ability level? For example maybe a grade 2/3 level, 5/6 level and an advanced level? I this would make it the perfect app for text types.
    Thank you

    • Hi Misha,
      Thanks for your feedback. Yes including other samples is a great idea. I am currently working on upgrading a couple of my other apps, but would like to get to this soon. I am more than happy to include student samples in my app too, so if you have student examples that you would like published in my app then send them through. Of course we would need parent permission to use the work.
      Happy writing!
      Linda

  3. I would like to request having a biography writing section. This seems to be very difficult for my second graders. Thanks.
