The title says it all! This book the way I viewed teaching writing. We are not teaching writing, we are teaching writers. If your child has the ability to think and have an opinion, then they have the ability to write. We are just trying to help them be brave enough to get those thoughts out of their heads and onto paper.
The cheapest writing program around and you will not need another! K-12
Wow! This is an absolutely amazing book! It is jam packed.... chock full.... brimming with awesome ideas for you, the teacher, to get your kids writing. This would be a great supplement to any traditional school book and can easily be the main source for a homeschool mom. These ideas are easily adaptable for young writers to late elementary and middle school.
