Fun is the word of the day!
WriteShop Primary is an exciting, parent-guided writing curriculum for K-3rd graders with daily, easy-to-implement activities to share with your young learner.
“A flexible, gentle program, full of variety and creativity for the young writer…. Since early lessons have the option to be entirely oral on the part of the child, there is no pressure, only the opportunity to talk about things that are familiar to him as he watches Mom write down his words."
–Shannon Cullip, AK, homeschool mother of four
WriteShop Primary teaches the skills of the writing process at the very simplest level through activities, crafts, and picture books. It accommodates pre-writers as well as beginning and developing writers, so your youngster needs no previous reading or writing experience. Slowly and gently, the child is asked to help with the actual writing, first in simple words and later, through copywork. And by turning these stories into a little craft, he will have a project to proudly share with others.
Several schedules help you plan according to your child’s grade or skill level. Lessons are divided into eight Activity Sets to thoroughly cover a topic without hurrying the child. Examples abound to make teaching oh, so easy for you!
Each Activity Set includes Guided Writing Practice. Activity Sets 2-8 also include a key activity or project.
