NOTE: The Time-Saver Pack is not a substitute for the Book E Activity Pack.
Pre-writing games and skill-building activities make learning to write exciting and enjoyable for elementary ages. That’s why WriteShop Junior includes dozens of activities that teach new skills in the way your child learns best. Appealing to visual, auditory, and hands-on learners, the Book E 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 sturdy, ready-made props for many Book E activities, such as:
- Spin-a-Story Adventure! Spinner to choose exciting elements for an adventure story
- Stop and Go Flags to practice identifying sentences that don’t belong
- Unlock the Mystery Bookmarks to identify important parts of a story
- Fishing for Synonyms Cards to practice replacing boring words with descriptive ones
Parents Love the Time-Saver Pack!
