✏️ We recently asked educators about their experience teaching writing and discovered that while 100% of respondents believe writing is critical for student development, a whopping 75% do not have the necessary tools to teach it. 

This is why we created Bridge to Writing. Nearly 1,000 K-2 classrooms piloted Bridge to Writing in classrooms nationwide this fall! 

“I like how Bridge to Writing immediately has students working with conventions.” shared Bridge to Writing pilot participant Kim Abdill, “The writing prompts are precise, so even my most emergent writers know what to write and can feel successful.”
