I'm sorry that I don't have the book you need, but would like to ask how you like Kidspiration?  What grade level do you use it with?

Hi Molly,

 

I love it. I just need ideas. Basically templates and examples of activities with follow through till completion.

It is good to start kids off in Kindergarden as it has pictures you can choose from. There is a lock out for teachers/parents. You can start from the most simple and progress to 5th grade with the most complex.THe best grade to start it from is 1st and 2nd grade, when the children are more involved in writing activities.  It is a graphic organizer. What ever you write you can link up with a graphic pictorial and visa versa.Whatever It is very visual and it can aid a teacher/parent and children to identify organizational problems. I like to use it to inspire more than anything else. It is just plain fun for kids to pick out pictures and expand on their thoughts. There is a more advanced program called Inspiration and there is also the free Webspiration. You can download the trial Kidspiration for 30 days as well as inspiration.

For now, I'm getting my ideas from searching the net and graphic organizer workbooks I have collected from PBS.:)

 

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
