What makes a child enjoy writing? You’ve heard me say it before on this blog and in videos—directed instruction!
What makes a child love writing? Directed instruction coupled with a fun (and familiar) topic.
My Write On! books have both of those benchmarks—and my test students have been loving these projects so much!
I’m excited to announce a new downloadable product that is super user-friendly and effective! And…..it’s based on the story of Beauty and the Beast, so it’s super fun too!
I’ll give you the details of the product in a little bit, but I want to let you know how you can get your hands on this resource first.
I am so excited about my new preposition book! (Yes, I get super excited about grammar!)
And I’m doubly excited that you (our subscribers!) get to see it and use it first—for FREE! (Subscribe here to get it for free for a limited time!)
The best way to introduce you to this fun, effective book is to leave you with the store description! So here you go…..
With the addition of live video Cottage Classes to our line up next year and the completion of the Meaningful Composition and Write On writing series recently, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my books.
It’s finally happening! I am finished with the Write On, Beauty and Beast books (five books; five levels; downloadable AND print books)—and they are going up at my stores!
Yay! That makes five Write On, Mowgli! books; five Write On, Beauty and Beast! books (by the end of next week); and two Write On, Peter Pan! books (with the other three coming the first of April). Check out the description of the Write On! books here.
The first one available is the Junior High book, and I love it! I have been testing the assignments with our one hundred cottage class students over the past two semesters, and it has been a blast!
My Meaningful Composition co-author (my oldest child Joshua) and I have been writing a novel for, um, four years now. Well, truth be told, he has been writing it for nearly twenty years as he started outlining it when he was eighteen years old. It is finished actually, but Joshua is a perfectionist (at teaching, instructional writing, lesson plan preparation, and novel writing), so it isn’t finished in his eyes. We recently got it back out, dusted it off, and dug in to find his perfect spot again (and add in more technology…do you know how much things change in our world in four years?).
I have written seventy-five books in the past fifteen years—averaging 800 pages a book. The first forty were completely new books, and the next thirty-five have been re-writes and new books taken out of the original forty (i.e. half of the MC lessons came out of Character Quality Language Arts, for instance). But it has been a long journey nonetheless.
