This program is for lower elementary school students. It includes 8 essay prompts. The students are suggested to finish one essay every week. We will focus on grammar skills, sentence writing and paragraph writing. Students will practice writing and revising their own complete sentences, with descriptive details in various sentence types, then later need to form them into paragraphs.
More importantly this program will nurture the creativity and voice of every young writer.
