Improve Creative Writing Skills
Imagine Forest is on a mission to encourage more children to write books for pleasure! Writing should not be a chore or something forced on a child. It should be a desire, a want to write books simply because it's fun and enjoyable. We are continuously updating our site with new resources, videos, challenges and more to encourage your students to write for pleasure.
Track Student Activity
Once you have added students to a classroom, you can track their site activity from the moment they join the site. From books published to books read, commented on or liked and even assignments completed - You as a teacher can see everything that your student does on Imagine Forest. Tracking student activity allows you to see how often your students use Imagine Forest and how they are using the site.
You can create an unlimited number of classrooms, for each subject or class you teach. And each classroom can have an unlimited amount of students in it! Once classrooms have been created you can set assignments, view progress and more. Each classroom also has its own classroom library, so students from the same classroom can read each other's books and engage with them. See our teacher's help guide for more information.
Creating assignments is the best thing about Imagine Forest for teachers! We currently offer three types of assignments, Story, Activity and XP Points. The Story type assignment allows you to create a custom book assignment with your own details. The Activity type assignment gives you the option to select from a few pre-made writing activities that your students can complete. Finally, the XP Points assignment allows you to set an XP goal, that your student must reach to complete the assignment.
Once assignments have been completed, you as a teacher can easily grade them inside Imagine Forest. We also give you the option to download a PDF version of the completed assignment, if you want to grade the assignment offline or in another tool. For each completed assignment, you can also give it a grade, type in some feedback and give the student a badge for completing the assignment.
Access School Library
The school library allows a teacher to view all books published by their students. Feel free to download PDFs of these books, like, favorite or comment on them. You can also view the assignments library to see past completed assignments by students in your class.
Who's the best writer in all of your classes? The school leaderboard shows you the top writers and top books published by your students. You can easily see which student is doing well and which students might be lagging behind. The school leaderboard also gives you an opportunity to reward top-ranking students offline! Students have access to a class leaderboard, which lets them see top students in their own class!
