2nd/3rd Grade Writing

Pre-IEW Writing Classes for 2nd and 3rd Graders

This class is designed for second and third grade students who are ready to begin writing organized, sophisticated sentences and eventually advance to imaginative stories, personal narratives, and expository paragraphs. We begin with lots of oral language practice and vocabulary building, and then use organizers to write powerful story sentences that include a character, action, and setting.  We add fancy words (descriptive adjectives) to make our sentences come alive.  We systematically move through levels of writing so that students feel comfortable and ready for the next step.

This class is based on the powerful Nancy Fetzer Writing Program, which involves systematic lessons to engage students to write organized and interesting sentences and paragraphs.  Oral language strategies and oral rehearsal is used heavily to elicit sophisticated writing in young students.

My second and third grade writing classes are excellent preparation for my IEW Writing Classes, which are aimed at grades four through eight.

New classes begin Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at 10:00 am
