WriteShop Junior is a creative writing program that appeals to many learning styles. As with all WriteShop products, Book D helps you guide students through the steps of the writing process. To keep the experience fun, each lesson includes games and activities that teach and review important writing and self-editing skills.
Successful writing results from purposeful instruction. WriteShop Junior has been created with parent-and-child partnership in mind, so plan to work together with your student through each step of the program.

If Purchasing the PRINT Version
The consumable Activity Pack may be reproduced for your immediate family. Student Worksheet pages are printed on white paper and will reproduce clearly. The Fold-N-Go Grammar section, which is printed on colored paper, may not photocopy well.
- Option 1: If photocopying is not an option, buy an extra Book D Activity Pack for each additional student.
- Option 2: If you plan to photocopy the white Student Worksheet pages from the Activity Pack but give each child their own Fold-N-Go, buy an extra Level 1 Fold-N-Go Grammar Pack for each additional child.
If Purchasing the E-BOOK (Digital) Version
The digital Book D SET is available as a PDF download. It contains everything you will need for teaching Book D, whether you plan to use the program with just one child or with several. Feel free to download and print as many copies from the E-books as you need for your immediate family’s use only.

What Parents Are Saying…
WriteShop has changed my little boy into a writer … I am just so happy that he is excited about writing!
Every time I bring out a writing program, it ends in tears. Thank you for a writing lesson without tears!
Pam, New Zealand
Do you want to know the BEST thing? She still complains about writing … but I find her writing all over the place now. In her room. In the car. In her journal. She just finished writing a play with her sister. The spark has been ignited…
Taunya, Walking with Shiloh
We’re nearing the end of our year and I give WriteShop Junior D two thumbs up. I’m delighted with what my daughter has accomplished during the year and I’m also delighted that I can hold onto this program to use with her little brother later. Even though he has different learning styles, strengths and interests, I am confident this program can meet him at his level and help him be a better writer, too!
