An essential part of WriteShop Junior Book E, 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 87 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 2
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 2, your student will have assembled his 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 E and requires the Book E Teacher’s Guide for instructions.
If purchasing the PRINT version
Each child will need his or her own Activity Pack. You may purchase one Activity Pack per student, or you may reproduce pages for single-family use only. If you plan to make copies, please note the following:
- Student Worksheet pages are white and will photocopy cleanly.
- PLEASE NOTE: Fold-N-Go pages are printed on colored paper and may not reproduce well (with some printers, pages come out gray). If you plan to make copies of the white Student Worksheet pages, it is recommended that you also purchase an extra Level 2 Fold-N-Go Grammar Pack (sold separately) for each additional child.

What Parents Are Saying…
The brainstorming worksheets and editing checklists were fundamental in my son’s journey from fearful writer to blossoming author!
Each week was filled with surprises and new ways to do the old subject of writing. We found the worksheets and editing tools invaluable.
I love the All Star Editing! I can’t say enough how much I love it! [My son is] beginning to look at his work a little more critically in a good way
Our favorite parts were the Fold-N-Go reference folders (great for pulling out during the writing process), the journal writing exercises (those fifteen minutes always flew by for Ben), and the brainstorming worksheets (which made the actual writing of the paper much easier).
I thought WriteShop Book E was easy and fun to teach, and the skill builder worksheets were awesome!!!

Both my daughters learned a lot from WriteShop … They loved the games and activities. It made learning fun for them.
