Looking for a way to keep your students engaged this semester — or to give a younger learner in your household some opportunities to explore their creative writing skills outside school? Blogging is a great activity to try out. Regularly writing blog posts helps kids learn to express themselves in writing, improve their communication skills and think quickly, and it can even boost their self-confidence.

As with many social media platforms, however, some of the larger blogging websites require users to be age 13 or older in an effort to protect younger kids. Fortunately, there are several reputable websites that allow teachers and parents to introduce children to the world of online publishing and blogging in a safe way. Check out our picks for some of the top student blogging and writing sites to consider working into your curriculum each year.
