JuniorWriter is great for primary grade classrooms and for children to use at home.  Our thanks to Carey Clark, a writer and mother who has used JuniorWriter with her children.  See the quotes below from the review at her blog.  We encourage you to visit Carey's blog to read the entire review and to follow some of the ideas she shares there with other parents. 
...Once upon a long time ago, we discovered Junior Writer. To be perfectly honest, at the time I was seeing a lack in technology to facilitate kids writing their stories and was thinking maybe I could rally some talented software-designing friends to help me write a program that would fit the bill. In searching for available URLs, I tried “Junior Writer” and found that a program already existed at that address that was just what I was looking for.
And so our family began to use Junior Writer.
...The beauty of Junior Writer is its simplicity. Students log on and can get to work writing right away, from a prompt, or with using their own imaginations. While I schedule time for my kids to use Junior Writer, they often ask to use it on their own. What a great way to spend their masterly inactivity time!

On the student screen, kids can begin writing, but if they have difficulty remembering how to spell a word, never fear, they ask the “teacher” to enter the word into their dictionary, and they can continue writing. When they encounter the need to use that word again, if they still can’t remember, they can look it up on the dictionary above their work using the first letter of the word, and then drag and drop it into the story! Isn’t that brilliant? And if you use the program in Mozilla Firefox, a red line will appear under misspelled words, signalling children when they need help. They can use most of the usual functions you’d expect of a word processor as well: changing font size, copying, printing, saving.

When they’re not actually writing their stories, kids can play games using their dictionary words, such as hangman or word search. They can also practice their new words in spelling drills.

Junior Writer has become an essential part of our homeschool–a resource that we found when our children were first beginning to write, and one that will stay with us for some time to come.
