Kids' Place: Houghton Mifflin English

At this site, Houghton Mifflin has created a number of activities and resources to support writing. Students in grades 2-5 will find story starter pictures for a variety of kinds of writing (opinion, instructions, personal narrative, persuasive essay, story, description, and compare-contrast), as well as links to authors and illustrators, graphic organizers, a limited number of research topic links, and some examples of student work. Quizzes focusing on parts of speech and usage can also be found.

Published by Houghton Mifflin in 2008

"OK, I admit it. I put off getting active on My eCoach for quite some time. I was busy with daily routines, state reporting needs, student information systems and staffing needs. NOW it is time to spend quality time re-energizing myself and my staff with the fabulous and infinite resources on this site. I will encourage the staff at our school site to spend 30 minutes a day getting acquainted, responding to blogs and growing for the sake of our students!"
