Intro to Writing for Grades 3-5 (9:00)

Course: Intro to Writing for Grades 3-5

Grade Range: 3-5

Instructor: Shelley Campbell


Price: $200  

Duration: 28 weeks

Course Description:  This class offers a smorgasbord of writing opportunities! Students will work on writing narrations, letters, stories, essays, poetry and more. My goal is to meet students where they are in their writing journeys and gently help them grow from there. I aim to create a warm and hospitable environment for writers of all levels! As a class, we will practice by reading high quality picture books and use them as a springboard to train our minds to read like writers. Students will then practice writing, employing the tactics used by the authors whose work we are enjoying. While we will work on strategies to strengthen the overall quality of students’ writing, the focus of this class will be on process over product. My goal is for students to come to enjoy writing and recognize its practical value as they develop increasing confidence in their abilities to express their own thoughts and ideas on paper!  

Course Prerequisites: *The student needs to be able to write a few sentences independently.

Curriculum:  Developed by the instructor, borrowing some from Mentor Texts

Homework: Estimated 30 minutes to and hour each week
