Is your child "writing-phobic"? Are you looking for a curriculum that puts the fun back in writing? Then you'll love WriteShop Junior!
WriteShop Junior is a creative writing program that appeals to many learning styles. As with all WriteShop products, Book D helps you guide children through the steps of the writing process. To keep the experience fun for everyone, each lesson includes engaging games and activities that teach and review important writing and self-editing skills. And whether you have a more advanced child or one who is fairly new to writing, this program is flexible so children can work at their own level.
WriteShop Junior is not an independent course. Lessons are designed for parent and child to work together. While each lesson follows a consistent format, the varied and interesting activities mean your student will look forward to each day’s work. Lessons break the writing process into manageable chunks that are easy to understand and master. The Teacher's Guide includes several schedules with daily lesson plans. Schedules are flexible and easy to follow.
Book D teaches the basics: how to come up with ideas; brainstorm and organize before writing; choose more interesting words; self-edit in a fun and positive way; and publish creatively.
Additional Placement Help
Start with Book D if your child has not learned many punctuation or grammar skills and still needs a lot of help planning, organizing, and adding details to a story. Book D is also a good choice for struggling learners. Extremely reluctant 3rd graders should start with WriteShop Primary Book C.
