WHAT IS WRITESHOP JUNIOR?

WriteShop Junior is a homeschool creative writing program for upper elementary students.

Using fun graphics, engaging games and activities, and age-appropriate methods, WriteShop Junior helps you teach the writing process and self-editing skills to your child.

The program comes with a teacher’s guide and activity pack {student worksheet pack AND Fold-N-Go grammar pack}.

OUR THOUGHTS

Oh man, I love it.  LOVE it!

Babydoll can’t stand writing, and the writing program we originally started with didn’t do much to make her like it either.

I think part of the problem is my inability to teach the process.  I’ve never been a follower of the actual process, although after going through it in college, I see the benefit.

While I know how I sit down and write, I can’t communicate to Babydoll, who hates to write, how to sit down and write something.

THE TEACHER’S GUIDE

The teacher’s guide does a phenomenal job of walking you through the entire process of teaching your child to write.

It doesn’t just tell you which lessons to do on what day.  You are given ideas to create a portable or permanent writing station, several sample schedules to follow, tips on how much you should help your child, and more.

After just reading through the first portion of the teacher’s guide I felt like I would be better equipped to teach Babydoll the writing process.

You are given an easy breakdown of advanced prep, materials needed, and other helpful tips for each lesson.  They’ve designed it in a way that allows a more confident teacher to take what they need and go, while someone like me who is a little uneasy about the whole process can really get the guidance they need.

THE ACTIVITY PACK

The activity pack is full of everything your student will need to complete WriteShop Junior.

The fonts and graphics are fun; Babydoll was quickly enticed.

I definitely recommend trying this product if you’re looking for a writing curriculum.

I had all but given up, hoping that as she progressed through her other studies we could find ways to tie writing in.

I am so happy that we had the opportunity to give this a try!
