Weekly Writing Corner

The Weekly Writing Corner gives young learners a unique avenue to experience the power of the pen! Kid Scoop offers a weekly writing prompt that gives young people an opportunity to be published in their local Kid Scoop-supported newspaper. We recommend that teachers use the writing schedule as a regular part of your curriculum as the writing prompt relates to the weekly Kid Scoop theme. All entries should be submitted directly to your local newspaper.
