Elementary Writing Class Wednesday 9:30 - 12:00 pm
Looking for a language arts class that employs creative learning methods to painlessly teach grammar and sentence writing skills? Infused with grammar, The Write Foundation sets the stage for future student success. Taught incrementally, students develop layers of writing skills that take the mystery out of learning how to write well. Students use highlighters to color code the concepts learned in class. Weekly games add lively fun while further reinforcing concepts. Creative methods of writing poetry are mastered even by the most reluctant writers. In addition to writing and grammar, this course will endeavor to foster a love for literature. Each month the class will read engaging children’s classics. The basic book report will take on creative twists and turns throughout the year, giving students a chance to explore their own unique creative outlets while practicing their newly developed writing skills. The goal of this class is to teach foundational skills while promoting a true enjoyment of writing, grammar, and literature.
