An essential part of WriteShop Junior Book D, the Book D Activity Pack is actually two workbooks in one!
The left side contains the Student Worksheets, and the right side contains the Level 1 Fold-N-Go Grammar Pack. Both are tear-off pads.
COMPONENT 1: STUDENT WORKSHEET PACK
Includes 60 activity pages your child will use to complete portions of each lesson. Games, word banks, worksheets, and graphic organizers introduce children to lifelong writing skills such as brainstorming and self-editing.
"I have been so impressed with the brainstorming worksheets. They are really powerful tools. As a lefty who thinks visually, I appreciate having all of the brainstorming arranged so usefully! It really does make the process of pulling the ideas out of the brain and arranging them in a logical manner so much easier." –Krystin, KY
“My son is enjoying the process, having fun, and looking forward to doing the activities each day. That’s a giant step for him!” – Teresa, WA
"The way WriteShop Jr. has taught them to edit is awesome—they're not afraid to look for errors. The Star Editing sheet gives them a great visual reminder of where to start and what to do next. All the editing tools really make it more of a game, and that goes a long way with my son.” –Kelley, SD

COMPONENT 2: LEVEL 1 FOLD-N-GO™ GRAMMAR PACK

"“We love the Fold-N-Gos! Grammar has never been a favorite subject for my 11-year-old son. However, these break grammar down in such a fun and easy-to-use way, that he now understands the concepts and doesn't even realize that it is 'grammar.’ Anything that is simple to use while still effective is a must for any homeschool family, and these fit the bill perfectly!” –Tammy, FL
"My son loves the Fold-N-Gos. He refers to them often when doing other school assignments." –Michelle, FL
“Fold-N-Gos have been a wonderful opportunity to review and learn grammar concepts. If that weren’t enough, they’re fun and something my daughter looks forward to. I love that!” –Heidi, NY
