Pre-writing games and skill-building activities make learning to write both exciting and enjoyable for elementary ages. That’s why WriteShop Junior includes dozens of activites that teach new skills in the way your child learns best. Appealing to visual, auditory, and hands-on learners, the Book D Time-Saver Pack introduces new writing concepts in fun and clever ways.
This product truly saves you precious hours of prep time. Instead of creating and assembling your own game cards, spinners, and other tools to teach creative writing, busy moms like you will appreciate the Time-Saver Pack’s durable, ready-made props for many Book D activities, such as:
- Where in the World? Globe Spinner and Cards to describe the setting in an adventure story
- Camp Whodunit Cards to practice with the elements of a mystery
- Make a Face Emotion Cards to develop a character’s voice
- Adjective Exchange Coins and Back to the Clothesline to replace weak words with strong ones
- True Stories! Cards and Spinner to plan the elements of a personal narrative
