“Who knew you could use games and hands-on activities to teach writing! My daughter
really enjoyed the creative lessons, journal prompts, and ideas for publishing her stories.”
–Mindy Henry, Utah
Who can use WriteShop Junior Book F?
The third level in our WriteShop Junior series, Book F is written for children in 5th and 6th grade but may also be used with reluctant writers in 7th grade. It’s ideal for students who are not quite ready for the junior-high level of WriteShop I or who would still enjoy and benefit from hands-on writing activities. Book F may also appeal to 8th graders with special needs.
“Write Shop Junior has been such a blessing for my daughter. When she started using the program,
she was a reluctant writer. Now, she proclaims that writing is her favorite subject.
Book F has brought a fun element to a difficult subject.”
–Lauren Bell, Virginia
