Does your child love writing, but need some guidance organizing their ideas? Does your child need practice with creative writing in a fun, supportive environment? If you answered "yes" to either of those questions, then Super Storytellers Junior is the perfect class for your student! Each class will feature superhero-themed songs and games, class discussions, instruction on a specific element of writing, and plenty of time for each learner to work on their story and receive help as needed....
By the end of this course students will be able to: -Identify main characters in books, movies, or TV shows -Create their own fictional main character by drawing and writing about them -Identify settings in books, movies, or TV shows -Create a setting for their story by drawing and writing -Identify different ways to solve problems -Create a problem for their main character to solve -Create and describe a solution to their main character's problem -Choose a type of ending for their story (happy, sad, scary, etc.) -Gain experience organizing their ideas in writing while creating a short story -Share their completed story with their teacher and classmates if they are comfortable doing so
I am a published author (The Necklace, (c) 2017 Word Alive Press) and have been writing stories in my free time since I was six years old. I love writing and am excited to share my passion and knowledge with your students in this 4-week course.
Homework will only be assigned if students need to complete their worksheets from class before the next meeting.
A link to the handouts required for class will be posted on the classroom page. Each week before our meeting I will send a reminder to let you know what worksheets are needed for that week. Optional items to bring for specific class discussions will be mentioned in a post on the classroom page before the relevant meetings as well. *Students may choose to print out and use the worksheets provided or they can do their work on a computer or tablet if that works best for them, as long as they are able to save their work at the end of each class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
To fully enjoy and participate in the class students must be able to write simple sentences on their own or have an adult nearby to help them.
