Home School ONLINE – Hooked on Writing!
Online – Grades 4 to 7 – Get hooked on writing and let your imagination run free! Students will have the opportunity to engage in fun and creative writing activities while focusing on specific skill development. Create your own poetry anthology while practicing writing description and figurative language. Have you ever wanted to write a mystery or fantasy story? We will look at the elements to creating interesting characters, plot, and settings. What better inspiration than the great William Shakespeare. We will examine his life and read a shortened version of one of his plays. Students will write short fictional as well as persuasive writing pieces on topics such as the mystery of Shakespeare’s ‘seven lost years’ or the motives of a character. Through the course, students will participate in one-to-one and group editing sessions focusing on spelling, grammar, punctuation, and formatting skills with a goal towards self-editing.
