WRITE FROM THE BEGINNING
Grades 3-8
Instructor: Mrs. Jane Layton

Course Description: Write from the Beginning…and Beyond is a comprehensive writing program that uses Thinking Maps to build a strong foundation for writing across all genres and content areas. It is FUN! Students will learn to write personal narratives, imagine narratives, and information/expository in a meaningful, creative, and fun way. I choose interesting and/or funny Literature stories to help students learn to enjoy and even love writing. Imagination stories are done in collaborative groups. Students create silly stories using basic writing elements to complete them and act them out! Information/Expository writing explores subjects students are already interested in like favorite animals. Students learn to love writing when they are enjoying  it. Almost all work is done in class, unless your child is absent.

For the Level 2 class, persuasive writing may also be covered.

Class meets for 90 minutes, once weekly.
