Writer's Notebook is a combination of creativity with small bursts of writing. Pre-made pages offered but optional to help resistant writers. Each class we will create 5-7 pages depending on skill level, interest and completion from learners. Ms. Wendy will model how to create artwork or visual representation that will go with a piece of narrative writing. Example: Draw a suitcase (or use pre-made pages) & write about a part of the trip in each compartment. I will demonstrate how to...
Students will focus on the enjoyment of writing through non traditional exercises. Students will develop writing skills in their writers notebooks. Students will discuss their writing pieces (optional) and discuss their writing process.
I'm a proven Outschool teacher with over a year of experience creating, revising, and perfecting virtual classes. I am a certified teacher with 15+ years of teaching in the public, private, homeschool, university, online, or private tutoring sector. I have a business communication degree, a writing minor, and a teaching certificate. I have a dynamic teaching style and animated approach to teaching and learning. I am a mental health workshop facilitator which provides resiliency skills to kids through games, role-playing, crafts, and Socratic group discussions. I've taken writer's notebook workshops and have years of classroom experience implementing this in my classroom and tutoring sessions. I've created multiple writing lessons that utilize a variety of techniques to help students become lifelong writers. Parent reviews: Miss Wendy is a great teacher, she ensures everyone's participation and keeps class very engaged. My 9-year-old daughter said the teacher taught the class a lot of new writing techniques, ways to make up a short story, and that it's okay to write short snippets in your own personal journal - it doesn't always have to be full paragraphs. She said the teacher was very nice. My daughter enjoyed this class so much that we're registering for the next class by Wendy right after this class! My daughter loved this class. We actually signed her up for the intermediate class starting tomorrow. She really liked the teacher and how she interacted. Great class for the reluctant writer! I plan to sign up for the next classes in the series. This kept my 7 and 9 year old fully engaged and they had fun! Wendy was able to keep them busy, class engaged and all together in the project. My kids both URG when I have them do their writing so this was a great way to show them that writing can be fun and doesn't have to be a certain way or perfect. It was so inspiring that I think I will have them show me how create my own journal. Loved this and hope to join in future classes. Looking forward to seeing how my kids use their journals and if it inspires them to continue and love to write. Especially, since one of my kids has expressed in interest in writing his own book someday since he LOVES LOVES LOVES to read!!!
Complete writing assignments discussed in class.
Notebook, pencil, eraser, colored pencils, colored gel pens or ultra fine markers (just as long as they don’t bleed through), glue stick, tape, highlighters, cout words & pictures from old magazines (if you have them), stickers and a black fine tip marker or pen. If you don't have these materials, it's ok to start but you'll need pencil, eraser and colored pencils for a basic start-up.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
