Looking for ways to make writing more fun? If the idea of teaching writing seems intimidating, WriteShop Junior holds your hand every step of the way. Lesson plans show you exactly how to guide your child through each part of the writing process.
Inspire Confidence in Young Writers. WriteShop Junior's creative activities spark enthusiasm in both eager and resistant writers. And when fun replaces fear, a child's confidence as a writer begins to blossom. Sprinkled with games, hands-on projects, and parent guidance, WriteShop Junior encourages success!
Children learn that a series of stepping stones make up the writing process:
Brainstorming. Topic suggestions, graphic organizers, and gentle parent guidance help unlock your student's creative ideas.
Writing. Each engaging lesson uses games to introduce skills such as replacing weak words with strong ones, forming sentences of different lengths, and using emotion words in writing. Children are taught to use these new tools in their writing projects. Additionally, WriteShop Junior helps them use details and colorful description to write longer, more interesting stories and reports.
Self-Editing and Revising. WriteShop's encouraging “job-well-done” approach sends intimidation packing! Simple checklists and a personal editor's toolkit actually make the process fun. And students are always encouraged to publish their final draft in a creative way—with loads of ideas included.
