Today the blog Watch. Connect. Read. highlighted a writing contest for K-4 classrooms. It is the 7th Annual “Be-A-Famous-Writer” Contest sponsored by Mrs. P.
The videos I watched of Mrs. P fascinated me. She is such a jolly character.
What I love about the contest is it provides a great purpose for writing. I also love the PRIZE! The full details can be found at this site.
Here are the short details:
ENTRY DATES: SEPTEMBER 1, 2015.
Contest Closes: November 15, 2015
Winners Announced January 15, 2016
For classrooms K – 4th grade
Mrs. P invites your class to write a story on the topic of PETS for the 2015 contest theme, no less than 250 words and not to exceed 1,000 words. It may be fiction or non-fiction. Any classroom from Kindergarten through 4th grade may enter.
I hope if you are a K-4 teacher you will give this contest a try!
