FB 5000 Giveaway - shdw
We hit a big milestone on our WriteShop Facebook page last week: 5,000 likes! We so appreciate you being part of our Facebook community, and we’re celebrating with a special giveaway.

To thank you for your support of WriteShop, we’re giving one winner a choice of any level of WriteShop curriculum. That’s right: the winner will receive the teacher’s guide and student workbook for any level in WriteShop Primary, WriteShop Junior, or WriteShop I or II.

WriteShop Primary

WriteShop Primary

WriteShop Primary gives K-3rd graders an introduction to early writing skills. Young children learn to plan, write, and revise stories and short reports through activities such as games, picture books, and crafty projects. Topics especially appeal to these early elementary ages, and the hands-on learning experience is perfect for younger kids. Reading and writing skills are not needed, as all activities may also be done orally.

WriteShop Primary family features Book A, Book B, and Book C.

WriteShop Junior

WS-Junior

WriteShop Junior exposes 3rd-6th graders to genre, fiction and nonfiction writing, and journaling—and introduces great tools that truly motivate young writers. Prewriting games help them practice writing skills in such a fun way, they have no idea they’re doing school work! Graphic organizers help budding writers plan their stories and reports. And there are all sorts of engaging editing tools that actually make it fun to revise!

WriteShop Junior family includes Book D and brand-new Book E.

WriteShop I & II

WriteShop I and II

WriteShop I & II for junior high and high school students offer step-by-step lessons, challenging assignments, and creative activities.

WriteShop I students improve writing skills by becoming proficient in four vital techniques: brainstorming, drafting, editing, and revising. WriteShop II users will expand their skills by learning about descriptive narration, point of view, and voice. This level introduces essay writing, including timed essays.

Very interested in this writing program! It looks great!!

#2 Becky on 08.25.14 at 7:52 am

Thanks! I appreciate your Facebook posts. They are always helpful.

#3 kimberly adler on 08.25.14 at 8:58 am

I think it is my nervousness. I don’t think of myself as being any good at writing.

#4 Amber on 08.25.14 at 9:18 am

Thank you for the opportunity to win a WriteShop item!

#5 Raechelle Bellus on 08.25.14 at 9:19 am

Congratulations! This is our first year with Write Shop 1 and it has already made it much easier for me to teach my high school student. I did a lot of research and do not regret choosing this one for a minute.

#6 Toni on 08.25.14 at 9:57 am

My biggest challenge is just where to start! I could really use some guidelines on what to teach and when. I’ve been eyeing this curriculum for some time now!

#7 Renee on 08.25.14 at 9:58 am

I love using Write Shop with our kids!

#8 Tammy on 08.25.14 at 10:13 am

Ooh, I have an uneasiness about teaching writing like so many have fears about teaching math.

#9 Tristan on 08.25.14 at 11:04 am

My biggest teaching writing challenge is switching gears between the ages so I’m not expecting too much of younger ones and too little of older ones.

#10 Diana on 08.25.14 at 11:11 am

We have been blessed to have a good beginning to learning to write with Primary A and will be continuing with Primary B. my kids love doing this writing program! And the blog has given us so many starts through writing prompts!

#11 Lexi Henegar on 08.25.14 at 2:22 pm

My kids don’t enjoy the physical aspect of writing. They also struggle with spelling so they are intimated to try to write because they feel limited by the words that they can accurately spell.

#12 Starla on 08.25.14 at 3:06 pm

I would really like to try out Writeshop Jr. I’ve read so many positive reviews.

#13 Kim Kautzer on 08.25.14 at 3:41 pm

Lexi: You’re absolutely not alone. I’m a big fan of letting kids dictate so their ideas can be preserved when the physical act of writing presents a stumbling block!

#14 Michelle on 08.25.14 at 9:17 pm

My challenge is my children’s attitude toward corrections and revisions.

#15 Cathy Buchanan on 08.26.14 at 12:02 am

My biggest challenge is feeling motivation and confidence in teaching writing.

#16 Melissa Bell on 08.26.14 at 3:21 am

My biggest challenge is my own confidence. Writing is not my strong skill. I need a lot of hand holding to teach writing!

#17 HillaryM on 08.26.14 at 6:06 am

My biggest challenge is me. I’m not confident in my writing ability and knowledge of skills to teach my children. I cannot teach it myself – but can use great curriculum to help me. ;)

#18 Kayra on 08.26.14 at 9:42 am

Very interested in trying this with my 3 kids but specially my oldest, a 7th grader

#19 Kim jenne on 08.26.14 at 9:49 am

Write shop is amazing. I’m excited to add it to our curriculum this year.

#20 Heather on 08.26.14 at 9:58 am

I would love to win a copy of Write Shop to use with my children!

#21 Heather on 08.26.14 at 10:01 am

My biggest challenges with teaching writing are knowing where to start and getting my children interested in writing.

#22 Nicole on 08.26.14 at 12:43 pm

my biggest challenge is how to keep them interested and excited about it…

#23 Kay on 08.26.14 at 12:43 pm

Helping my boys find their own voice in writing.

#24 Amy on 08.26.14 at 12:55 pm

Would love this curriculum for my four kids! I struggled in school with writing and am struggling with teaching it too. Communicating is such an essential skill.

#25 Deana on 08.26.14 at 1:51 pm

My biggest struggle is that I do not feel like a very creative person myself so I have a hard time coming up with ideas to prompt my own kids’ writing. We love WriteShop!

#26 Lori on 08.26.14 at 7:16 pm

Love this curriculum!

#27 Marcy @Ben and Me on 08.26.14 at 7:43 pm

Definitely, consistency.

#28 Linda Reddoch on 08.26.14 at 7:45 pm

This is a very exciting curriculum!

#29 Heliana Villa on 08.26.14 at 7:57 pm

My biggest struggle is trying to make it fun for my kids.

#30 Shay on 08.26.14 at 8:21 pm

Teaching grammar!!

#31 Les M on 08.26.14 at 8:36 pm

Oo! Always wanted to try, but usually spending curriculum $$ on science, etc.

#32 Kristina S on 08.26.14 at 8:43 pm

I would love something new for my third grader.

#33 Heather A. on 08.26.14 at 8:52 pm

My biggest challenge when it comes to teaching writing is having never learned it myself. I make my living as a writer, but I tried all the methods they tried to teach me in traditional school, but always ended up with better grades and better writing by just doing what came naturally. So I have no clue how to teach my kids how to do it when I don’t know how I do it myself.

#34 Myrna on 08.26.14 at 8:57 pm

The biggest challenge I face when teaching writing is TEACHING WRITING :-(

#35 Kristina on 08.26.14 at 10:33 pm

Fitting it in and grammar.

#36 pei on 08.27.14 at 12:02 am

Getting the kids to be motivated is our challenge.

#37 Lindsey W. on 08.27.14 at 10:14 am

Writing is a hard thing to teach! This is our first year with WriteShop.

#38 Sally W on 08.27.14 at 10:26 am

I think that my biggest challenge when teaching writing is my kid’s attitude toward it. They whine and complain and it really irritates me. I usually end up giving up on it for a while and trying again after a few weeks or more with another approach. So far, I haven’t been very successful though.

#39 marcia on 08.27.14 at 10:27 am

My biggest challenge is to be an encourager and good example; to get past the spelling and grammar mistakes and just help my sons to be creative and enjoy the writing process.

#40 Tracey M. on 08.27.14 at 10:54 am

My biggest challenge is emphasizing and covering the many different components of writing: The different genres or types of writing, grammar skills, composition, adding details, teaching the writing process, etc.in a fun, interactive way that will keep her engaged. When I taught in the classroom, the writing (editing and revising) process always seemed like tedious work. I felt like at times I was pulling teeth to get them through the process. I don’t want to have the same response from my daughter – I want it to continue being fun and for her to fully comprehend the purpose of the process. I need a simple guideline that tells me exactly what to cover and when yet still leaves room for creativity and spontaneity. Thank you for the opportunity to win. I think if I won, I would choose Book D.

#41 zekesmom10 on 08.27.14 at 11:20 am

My kids despise writing. With an extra helping of dislike.

#42 Charis on 08.27.14 at 12:50 pm

Getting my children to write more, not the bare minimum and be done! Getting them to enjoy revising and doing their best!

#43 Allison on 08.27.14 at 2:54 pm

My biggest challenge is my lack of confidence in my own writing skills!

#44 Andrea on 08.27.14 at 6:22 pm

My biggest challenge is motivating my kids to write about a set topic.

#45 Amanda H. on 08.28.14 at 1:14 am

I have always thought teaching writing to my children would be the easiest part of homeschooling for me. Wrong! Knowing how to write and being able to teach it are two different things. I would have to say my own confidence is what my biggest challenge is.

#46 Lauren on 08.28.14 at 7:22 am

My biggest challenge when it comes to teaching writing is getting my kids started! They either don’t want to write about the topic I’ve chosen, or if I don’t give them a topic, they don’t know what to write about! I’d love to win this! Thanks for the opportunity!

#47 Jenny on 08.29.14 at 8:05 am

Congrats on passing your milestone! I love getting your status updates.

My biggest challenge is overcoming my boys’ dislike of actually writing. They have lots of ideas when they’re playing, but “writing” makes them clam up.

#48 Kristen F on 08.29.14 at 9:05 am

My son is really enjoying this curriculum. He is working in WriteShop D. I am pleased with as well, because it teaches me how to teach him to write. If chosen in the random drawing, I would choose, WriteShop I.

#49 Kat on 08.29.14 at 9:15 am

We loved Writeshop C and D! Can’t wait to try Writeshop 1

#50 Jaimee on 08.29.14 at 9:18 am

we are trying this program out for the first time this year. I’m happy to have found a program that teaches kids how to write because it is not as easy as I thought.

#51 Gina on 08.29.14 at 9:38 am

We are starting Level C this year! I love the layout of the book. My son is going to love writing…I can just see it now!

#52 KT on 08.29.14 at 9:57 am

Love Write Shop here! Thank you for the opportunity to win a level!

#53 KT on 08.29.14 at 9:58 am

Biggest challenge to teaching writing- being patient with the process

#54 Trish on 08.29.14 at 10:03 am

Thank you for the chance to win! We love WriteShop!

#55 MarshaJ on 08.29.14 at 10:37 am

My biggest challenge is getting the instruction down to my kids’ levels. I know how to write, but explaining it all to them isn’t easy. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

#56 DanaU on 08.29.14 at 11:23 am

I just started using WriteShop E and am loving it. My son was actually laughing while working on the grammar. Thanks so much.

#57 Kim Kautzer on 08.29.14 at 5:19 pm

That brought a smile to my face, Dana!

#58 Christina Perry on 08.29.14 at 7:21 pm

What is the biggest challenge you face when it comes to teaching writing?

Making sure that I can break it down so my daughter understands. I have to remember I’ve been writing for a lot more years than she has!

#59 Wendy Pierce on 08.30.14 at 12:49 pm

My biggest challenge(s) would be my son’s reluctance in the physical act of writing & his weakness in spelling.

#60 Jenny Dela Cruz on 08.30.14 at 8:31 pm

My biggest challenge is how to inspire the kids to enjoy the process of writing.

#61 Heather on 08.31.14 at 1:17 pm

My biggest challenge is motivating my children to want to write. I have 2 sons and 1 daughter and the boys are harder to motivate than my girl is.

#62 Melissa C on 08.31.14 at 2:09 pm

My biggest challenge is I have no idea how to teach them to write, what I’m looking for in an assignment, or how to get them to come up with ideas.

#63 Tricia Postma on 08.31.14 at 8:55 pm

Having confidence that I can actually do it!
