Here's what teachers have to say:
Writing Legends is just amazing – what a credit to you and the team! My students are just loving it and I love how you have provided such detailed writing support materials. As Digital Technologies coordinator and a classroom teacher I am very particular about the products I ask our large staff to invest time into. As a classroom teacher it is so hard to find, at level/appropriate, exemplars. Writing Legends has this feature in abundance – with such quality. Your writing platform is outstanding!
Mellisa Manuel, Warragul North Primary School (VIC)
Students enjoyed having a variety of topics and different requirements i.e. story starter, email, background story. They liked the different time and task requirements especially short and sharp activities.
Primary teacher (VIC)
My class and I have really enjoyed using Writing Legends. Several of the features were able to gain student's interest and the majority of my class worked very well with it. Features such as the word clouds, being able to share student work, having 4 'starter' topics for each week that had a different element was really useful and I used them a lot.
