Edublogs – This website allows you to set up student blogs for free if you set each one up individually.
Kidblog - Simillar to Edublogs, Kidblog allows you to create a blog for each student, but the blogs are not available to the public. Instead, you have a class space, and only students from their class can provide comments on student blogs. This provides more security, but less flexibility when it comes to sharing student work.
Little Write Brain – Like storybird and story jumper, Little Write Brain allows students to create online storybooks. However, Little Write Brain allows students to create characters, and gives them multiple “starter stories” that they can then add on to.
Read Write Think – Read Write Think has many printables that teachers use to help students organize writing, but they also have a great resource called Student Interactives. These interactives provide students with interactive organizational tools for various types of writing, including biographies, comparing and contrasting and even poetry. Using these interactives before writing can help students to organize their thoughts.
