Making lesson plans for English in November got a lot easier when I discovered the National Novel Writing Month Young Writer's Program. This is the month to get your student writing! Go to ywp.nanowrimo.org and sign up your student. Have them set a word goal for the month, and get them started writing. There are lots of resources to help your child get started, and you can track your growing word count as the month progresses. Students can share their book title and synopsis with others, as well as author information. Students who reach their word count goal at the end of the month receive a certificate.
