Welcome to our Teachers Center where you'll find a variety of activities to muse your students.
 
As the wise owl always says, "There's only a good book to read if there is someone to write it." So let's band together and make sure our children not only enjoy reading but also enjoy writing their own tales.

The Musing Book Reviews for Kids.
 
Teachers, here's an opportunity to begin your school year with a project where students will be encouraged to read and write, with no set deadlines, no particular books in mind...just mention to them they have their very own club to publish their writing.
 
The Musing Book Reviews welcomes reviews by students/children up to the ages of seventeen to submit reviews of books they've read.
 
What the Musing Reviews by Kids Club offers to a student:
 
  • offers them a site to publish their thoughts on books they've read
  • encourages them to read
  • teachers can use the Musing Reviews by Kids Club as a classroom project to read the same book then everyone can send in their reviews on that same book
  • encourages not only reading but writing, as well.
  • a downloadable Musing Reviews by Kids Club membership card to print and give to each child in your classroom

GUIDELINES:

Our guidelines are quite simple and we'd love to have your students/classroom participating all year round. This will not only encourage them to read, but to write and read their published reviews online on a safe website.

We need you to help them send me the following:

  1. their first name
  2. their age and grade level
  3. city and country
  4. the title and author of the book read
  5. their review within the body of the email - couldn't have a review site without reviews. :)
  6. email it to:  museitupeditor@yahoo.ca  with MUSE KIDS REVIEWS on the subject heading.

If you will be conducting a group project with your students to read the same book, then send us your name and school's name along with the above, and we'll set up a webpage just for your classroom to showcase to one and all.

Looking forward to your classroom's reviews.
