WriteReader Top Topic Trends (September 2016)

Research shows that motivation increases if students have a purpose for writing. At WriteReader, our vision is to enable kids to become creators and authors because real learning occurs when students are interested and engaged.

Every now and then we will publish a list of the top topics that kids in grades K-4 from across the US are writing about, along with suggestions for teachers to help students get started. Hopefully, this encourages kids to read and write more, and supports teachers with practical tips.
