WriteShop Primary Book C introduces the steps of the writing process through engaging activities, crafts, and picture books. As with earlier WriteShop Primary levels, children who are reluctant or not able to write on their own are encouraged to dictate their stories and ideas to you. As their skills develop, they will begin to gain both confidence and independence. For more advanced students, extra challenges appear throughout each lesson to promote stronger writing habits.
The Book C Teacher’s Guide takes you step-by-step through the writing process so you can teach—and edit—with confidence.
By the end of Book C, children will have learned to plan, create, and publish simple stories with parent help. They will:
- Plan the main ingredients of a story before beginning to write
- Learn to ask who, what, when, where, why?
- Use different graphic organizers to plan a story
- Write entries in a personal journal
- Describe an object, a person, and a place
- Write a nonfiction article
- Write a book report
- Learn to use research to write a short report
- “Publish” stories through projects or crafts
Other skills introduced in Book C include
- Using standard spelling
- Identifying describing words
- Using a simple self-editing checklist
- Summarizing contents of familiar books
- Collecting research facts about a specific topic
- Using computer publishing software
