A place where kids can share their writing.
Grade Level: K-2, 3-5

http://brightinvisiblegreen.com/kidscribe

CONTENT:
Kidscribe is designed to give children an opportunity to share their writing with others, in turn offering them a compelling and thoughtful reason to write. This bilingual site contains children's original stories, poetry, and jokes.
AESTHETICS:
This site is mostly text with few graphics. The stories, jokes, and poems are accompanied by a picture of the flag of the author's home country. The site's creator does not allow any advertising.
ORGANIZATION:
Simple to navigate, these pages are user-friendly. A top navigation bar leads visitors to the main areas of the site.

REVIEW:
Kidscribe was designed in an effort to give students a reason to write and to build confidence; "hopefully," according to the site, "they will become writers for life." Because this site features languages and ideas shared by children from around the world, it can be used by teachers, parents, and students in a number of ways. Spanish language teachers, for example, can find real-life examples of Spanish language use. Most contributors range from five to thirteen years of age. Children are encouraged to submit original stories, poetry, and jokes. All main links and navigational information at this site are offered in both English and Spanish.
