Description
The Write Foundation is introducing Creating Sentences, a beginning writing level course.

Creating Sentences prepares students for formal paragraph writing by teaching students how to develop better sentences with basic grammar and figures of speech, while dealing with common writing errors such as when is a noun proper, misused homonyms and apostrophe confusion.

Each lesson uses engaging writing activities and entertaining games geared for 8-10 year old students, which develop and advance students’ creative writing abilities and other writing skills. When taught how to write with structure and style most students find that instead of being the dreaded subject, writing becomes an enjoyable creative outlet.

Recommended Ages
Creating Sentences is suggested for ages 8-10 or grade levels 3rd-4th.
