We are taking part in a weekly writing challenge that includes classes from around the world! The 100 Word Challenge releases a prompt every Monday - it might be a picture, and the boys then have to write 100 words about the picture. Or it might be a sentence, and the participants have to write 100 words, while including the prompt somewhere in their stories. It's a really fun way to improve writing skills, including planning and editing!
Every Thursday, the 100 Word Showcase is announced, with stories from all around the world chosen by readers of the 100 Word Challenge as being some of the best in the world that week. See OUR Showcase stories here!
At the end of each week, we pick two stories from the ones we have written in our class during that week. They are then showcased in our classroom as our GEMS OF THE WEEK! Be sure to check out our 100 Word Challenge blog: mrrussell.100wc.net
