2022 Summer Live Online Class

  • 07/05 to 08/26  16 Classes Tuesday,Thursday 11:00am-12:00pm $335/term Location: Online8

    This class is for students who are going to enter the K-1 grade in the new school year. The class will introduce writing skills they will learn in the Skill-based Guided Writing Level 1 and get them ready for the new school year.

    Our "skill-based" program helps children focus on specific writing skills in each class, so students gain mastery skill by skill. They become confident, competent writers. Each term, we will practice many genres of writing, and each genre builds different skills such as writer's word choice with poetry and attention to descriptive details with science writing.

    Meanwhile, "guided" writing is highly supported, and enables students to produce advanced writing that is well-structured.

    An example guided writing assignment could provide the following prompts: 1. What was the best thing that happened over winter vacation? 2. Who was there? 3. Where was it? 4. When did it happen? 5. What happened first? 6. What happened next? 7. What happened last? 8. Complete the sentence: It was the best because ___________.

    A child who follows these prompts easily learns the importance of answering The 5 W's of questions. They also teach sequence of events and a closing that relates to the main idea. When students draft their paragraph on a new piece of paper, they will have a complex and complete paragraph.

    Level 7/8 supports students for academic success. The small class size makes it possible to focus on students' particular needs, including essay writing and writing under testing conditions. Students are encouraged to bring in real obstacles they are encountering in writing. Working together, we can overcome them.  

    Most of the skills are drawn from the higher level of the grade spread, therefore this class is most appropriate for advanced grade-7 students and on-level grade 8 students. Each of our levels has two years worth of skill content. A student can take this level for two years without repeating content! 

    Our "skill-based" program helps students focus on specific writing skills in each class, so students gain mastery skill by skill. They become confident, competent writers. Each term we practice many genres of writing. Each genre builds different skills such as building attention to word choice with poetry and attention to descriptive details with science writing. 

    Meanwhile "guided" writing is highly supported, and enables students to produce complete writing that is well-structured.

    We will begin each class by building grammar with the Grammar Workshop from Sadlier or Editor In Chief program from the Creative Thinking Co. along the year. The books for the class will be posted to the class page before the term starts.
