description

Students will become skilled and confident writers as they learn to develop strong paragraphs through choosing vivid, descriptive words and using sentence variations. They first learn to write descriptive paragraphs before moving on to informative, narrative, and persuasive writing. Weekly Skill Builders reinforce new concepts. Students then apply these concepts to their current composition. This class will help students improve the quality of their writing as they begin to see themselves as confident, life-long writers. Lessons break the writing process into manageable chunks that are easy to understand and master. Students will grow in their brainstorming and planning skills, gain confidence in writing creatively and learn new ways to edit and revise their stories and reports. Students will write through all stages of the writing process: draft, revise, edit, and complete a final copy. Handwriting is part of this class. This book will focus on fluency with more advanced language arts activities as well as cursive writing.
