The children are utilizing Monarch for their online school, but I use Google Drive more frequently for their projects rather than the built-in editor. There are several advantages – autosave, document collaboration, autosave, commenting, autosave, and so on. The kids really get a kick out of having both themselves and myself editing the document simultaneously. (I did too!)
Today we wrapped up their first creative writing exercises. I enjoyed their work so much, I published them here with their own by-line. They’re really excited about that!
- The Boy vs. The Weather
- Creative Writing (he didn’t title his work)
- Third story coming soon by third Buckling.
I love how much fun they had with this. I only helped edit for basic-level proper sentence structure and spelling – autocorrect doesn’t always have the right suggestion (another lesson!).
I can’t wait to see what they write next.
