The Writing Process for Beginning Writers : FLEX

Mary Armstrong, MAT
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(792)
In this 4 week flex class we will break down each step of the writing process for beginner writers: think, draw, label, write, details.

Class experience

US Grade Pre-Kindergarten - Kindergarten
Beginner Level
Learners will walk through the beginner writing process. They will learn each step and what is important for each step. 

Week 1: Learners will be introduced to the writing process. We will brainstorm ideas and come up with a list of ideas we can write 
             about. I will show learners how they need to know about the topic to be able to write about it. 
Week 2: We will draw a picture of what we want to write about. We will learn how the picture should match the topic of the story. We 
              will learn that a drawing does not have to be perfect, but should be realistic. (People are not green. Grass is not purple.) We 
              then will learn to label our pictures. We will put the first sound for each item in our picture (S for sun). 
Week 3: We will write the words for our story. We will make sure the words describe and match the picture. We will work on sounding 
              out words and spelling them by the sounds we hear. We will learn to have spaces between words. 
Week 4: We will go back and learn to add details to our picture and to our writing. We will make sure our sentence starts with a 
              capital letter and ends with a period. 

Learners will be encouraged to post their work each week to the classroom and to explore other learner's work. I will work with learners by commenting or posting a video about their work to encourage or provide suggestions each week. 
I was a full-time kindergarten teacher with my master's degree in elementary education. These lessons are the very first lessons that are taught to get young learners writing. I took many continuing education classes focused on early writers and breaking down the process into achievable steps. 
Homework Offered
After each video class learners will have an assignment that matches what we did in that lesson. Then at the end learners will be encouraged to create a story on their own after class.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
