Amazing Kids! is a great resource for you and your students! Amazing Kids! is an online magazine created for kids by kids (with a little adult help). In addition to reading some great articles on a variety of interesting and educational subjects, there are many ways for your students to get involved. Among other things, Amazing Kids! holds contests, sponsors a pen-pal program, and accepts submissions for kids ages 5-18. Kids can submit individually or as a class. Submissions include fictional stories, nonfiction articles, recipes, travel articles, jokes, poems, movie, books, and music reviews, photos, artwork, and videos. Amazing kids also features an Amazing Kid of the month to help inspire other kids to do amazing things.
The Amazing Kids! website was recently honored to be selected as one of the Top 24 “Great Web Sites for Kids” by the American Library Association (ALA), specifically under the category: “Writing by Kids.”
Amazing Kids! has high standards for writing and content. You can safely send your students to the website and be sure they will not find any inappropriate content or ads. So check it out!
