Most of you know me by now. And you know that writing, along with parenting, is a true love of mine. I began writing curriculum for a home school publishing company out of Chicago twenty years ago—then we opened our own small press publishing company fifteen years ago. And, in total, I have written over 100 books and 50,000 pages. (It didn’t seem like that many since I just wrote a little every day of my life!)

A small portion of that has been our parenting book, parenting seminar, blog posts, etc. However, most of that has been language arts, writing, reading, spelling, speech, debate, etc., materials. (I’ll post links to the ones at our store in the P.S. below!)

For today, I wanted to give you a free sampling of my Directed Writing Approach. You can choose the book/level you would like out of one of my monthly downloads. (So far, we have our Book-Movie-Book monthly downloads up—writing projects based on old books that are modern movies—and now made into “books” again for kids! So much fun!)

In all of my books I use the same approach—the aforementioned Directed Writing Approach. This means that every lesson is laid out in a directed manner. No guess work. No vagueness. No writing prompts. The writing projects take students from start to finish with every skill that the student needs to complete the project included in the lessons.

I love teaching kids—and I love seeing the light bulbs go off—and seeing them succeed in their writing. (Oh, and my books are tested in our local Cottage Class programs by over 100 kids each semester!)

I hope you enjoy this FREEBIE—print it off and use it with your students or with a small group. They are fun and interesting….kids love them! (And so do parents!)

Be sure to get yours by August 15….the freebie will come down then.
