About Skills 2 Write

Somewhere between tackling math problems and reading for meaning, kids are expected to write a LOT. They have to write narratives, letters, book reports, informative papers, 3-5 paragraph essays, Power Point presentations and persuasive papers.

With all of the writing kids do, many struggle to come up with words to put on paper. Learning to write can be incredibly rewarding but it can also be painstaking and frustrating.

Writing is a process and the ability to write does not develop naturally. To become good writers children need explicit instruction.

When children are taught the craft of proficient writing, they gain unbelievable power, not only as writers, but also as thinkers, learners and readers.

During the 8 week writing unit, writers will learn how to:

  • Generate ideas to write about
  • Express their thoughts into words
  • Plan out a focused, small moment story
  • Add details to make the story more exciting
  • Bring characters to life
  • Use craft moves that famous authors use
  • Use a strong beginning and a powerful story ending
  • Revise and edit story
  • Illustrate and publish a personal narrative

Class will end with a celebration of each child’s published work!

Limited to 4 students per class
