Practice writing fill in the blank stories each and every week

Class experience

US Grade 2 - 4
Beginner Level
The students will practice writing simple sentences. We will work on connecting the sentences into a short paragraph that may just be the start of a story the student would like to continue working on outside of class. 
I have a Master's Degree in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Spalding University. I love talking about all forms of writing! Writing prompts and critique-style discussion classes are something I have participated in many times over the years, and I am excited that some of my students have shown an interest in having a more hands-on, active class like this. I didn't want to leave out the younger students, who also seem very excited to learn to take the ideas in their head and put them down on paper. 
Homework Offered
There is no assigned homework. Students are welcome to take their paragraphs and continue to write about them throughout the week. They are welcome to share any parts of their stories in the classroom as well. My hope is that students will use the classroom throughout the week to read each other's work and comment in support of one another's stories and creativity.
Assessments Offered
Hopefully students will be open to sharing and receiving constructive praise from their peers. It is always wonderful to see a student take what has been said in class and apply that to the writing process. Over time, students' writing should become longer, stronger, clearer, and more focused. They should be able to write more descriptions, more paragraphs, and have a better understanding of their characters and stories.
Grades Offered
All prompts will be provided in class. Students may want some way to write down (or type out) their responses to keep for themselves. Otherwise they can answer questions directly in the classroom chat box. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be encouraged (but never forced) to share their stories. The students will craft a paragraph in this class using a fill in the blank model. This is a place that encourages writing and creativity in many different shapes and forms, but the classroom style is very laid  back and casual. This is an ongoing class that will last as long as there is student interest. There is no start or stop date. Outschool charges credit cards on file every Sunday. If you would cancel your subscription before Sunday, you will not be charged for the following week.
