  2. I love Kidspiration and Inspiration.

    I use it all the time for my 6th grade Language Arts and Social Studies. I use the rapid fire for brainstroming then I link the ideas that go together to form graphic organizers and outlines. It is so easy to switch between a graphic organizer and an outline, just a click of the mouse and its done. I use this on my LCD projector to model how these steps to the writing process should be done.

    I also use this to outline novels we read in our class. I do a chapter by chapter summary with important themes in the book, then I print it and give it out for study guides and for students who are absent when we discuss certain sections.

    It is also so easy to use. I still feel like i am only scratching the surface of what this program can do, but I already love it. I suggest you try it!
