If you have a child outside the age range listed (8-11), please contact me to discuss if this will be a good fit for your child's abilities. Students should already have a firm understanding of writing a complete sentence and a basic understanding of connecting thoughts together into a paragraph. Happy writers and struggling writers are all welcome! We will have a very brief lesson on 5 sentence paragraphs and the steps in the writing process. Then, students will brainstorm/pre-write and...
Students will practice writing a 5 sentence paragraph in answer to a weekly writing prompt, revolving through different types of writing genres.
I believe giving students interesting topics to write about allows them to have fun writing! Although I list out prompts, and encourage students to use the given prompt for that week, I allow some freedom for students to write about something they can connect with on a given week (as long as it is related to the topic somehow). I believe writing gets better and easier with practice, practice, practice! I have a journalism degree and have been teaching writing and grammar for 15+ years in my homeschool and online.
Students may need some time after class to finish their paragraph. After class, I send out a fun, themed page for the student to make a clean, final copy.
Look for a pre-writing page to be released in the classroom about 24 hours before each class.
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.
