Writing Prompts and Inspirational Posters Honor Sandy Hook Elementary School

Feb. 20, 2013 - PRLog -- In honor of the victims and families of Sandy Hook Elementary following the December 14, 2012 tragedy in Newtown, CT., WriteSteps is participating in the Acts of Kindness campaign. The WriteSteps team created writing prompts to help students express themselves during a time of grief or tragedy and designed inspirational We are a Family school posters.

Most experts say when children experience grief or tragedy it is wise to give them an opportunity to express their feelings. Writing can be very therapeutic and is a wonderful expressive tool for students.

“Because writing is a medium that we teach at WriteSteps and something the WriteSteps team is passionate about, we felt it was important to create a list of writing prompts that can help students,” said Suzanne Klein,  WriteSteps Founder and CEO. “We want to continue to honor the memory of the children and educators who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School.”

WriteSteps created inspirational We are a Family posters that can be downloaded for free. The posters can be sent to a local printer to print in 11x17 poster size, or they can be printed in the standard 8 ½ x11 format.

Schools are encouraged to hang the posters in school hallways and classrooms.  Help WriteSteps spread the message that together, as an education community, we are working to create a better world for our children.

In 2007, WriteSteps Founder and CEO Suzanne Klein committed herself to creating teacher-friendly writing lessons after her school decided to prioritize writing due to low student outcomes. The writing program she developed - WriteSteps - was so successful in raising test scores and student confidence that the company expanded its scope to refocus instruction on the Common Core State Standards for writing and grammar. Its Common Core release won a "Best of Entrepreneurs" Award from Ann Arbor SPARK in 2010 and launched nationwide in September, 2011. WriteSteps is the recipient of Learning Magazine 2013 Teachers' Choice Award.
