This book joins the previously published "Kidspiration in the Classroom: Math Made Visual" and "Kidspiration in the Classroom: Reading Essentials."
Kidspiration 3 supports students in kindergarten through fifth grade as they build conceptual understanding in math, strengthen reading and writing skills and develop thinking skills across the curriculum.

"Kidspiration in the Classroom: Writing Essentials" is designed to teach students the complete writing process and includes standards-aligned chapters and lessons on prewriting, drafting and revising, editing and publishing, in addition to forms of writing. Lesson topics include: planning for writing, revising drafts, exploring different genres of writing and developing catchy titles. The book also includes references to suggested reading materials and other resources for teaching students the nuances of quality writing.
