An essential part of WriteShop Junior Book F, the Activity Pack is actually two workbooks in one! The left side contains the Student Worksheets, and the right side contains the Level 2 Fold-N-Go Grammar Pack. Both are tear-off pads.
COMPONENT 1: STUDENT WORKSHEET PACK
The Student Worksheet portion of the Activity Pack has 89 activity pages your child will use to complete parts of each lesson. Games, word banks, worksheets, and graphic organizers introduce children to lifelong writing skills such as brainstorming and self-editing.
Student Worksheet Pack includes
- Pre-writing Activities
- Skill Builders
- Journal Prompt Pages
- Brainstorming Worksheets
- Reading Log Forms
- Self-editing Checklists
- Evaluation Charts
COMPONENT 2: FOLD-N-GO GRAMMAR PACK, Level 3
Make 10 Fold-N-Go grammar and writing guides, each devoted to a different skill. Simple rules, engaging examples, and practice exercises make learning or reviewing grammar fun! By the end of Level 3, children will have assembled their own set of 10 portable reference folders.
Fold-N-Go Grammar Pack includes
- 10 Fold-N-Go Grammar Guides printed on colored paper
- 20 Fold-N-Go Bookmarks for quick review
- Assembly Instructions
- Answer Keys
You will also need 10 tabbed file folders (not included).
The Activity Pack is not a stand-alone product. It is necessary for success with WriteShop Junior Book F and requires the Book F Teacher’s Guide for instructions.

What Parents Are Saying…
The game activities were our favorite part of the program. What better way to learn a new skill or writing tool than with non-threatening and fun activity!
My daughter really caught on to the whole writing process this year…. She really began to understand the importance of brainstorming before writing. Her self-editing skills really improved, and she became more independent as she used the checklists.
The brainstorming worksheets and self-editing checklists … are important tools for enabling beginners to become independent in their writing as the year progresses.
My daughter loved the games that went along with the lessons—great tools to remember or visualize what was being taught. I have watched her go from dreading writing, to tolerating it, to writing on her own.
The brainstorm worksheets were my favorite part of the whole program. They made the writing process so “bite-sized” and thorough. If my son followed through on the worksheets, he was completely prepared to face his writing project!
The worksheets and activities were very helpful in concretely guiding my child to put her thoughts and ideas into words.
The editing worksheets teach them that editing can be fun, not dreaded.
