Mighty Writers

If there is fear or anxiety about writing, students will feel differently after mastering new concepts from the IEW program. Using movement, games, object lessons and humor, I’ll build confidence in these kiddos to approach writing assignments with ease. Using a variety of source texts in nonfiction, fables, and stories, students will build their writing toolbox as they learn about dress ups, decorations, sentence openers, word choice, topic sentences, clinchers, composition structure, story elements and more. At the end of the semester, students will be well-prepared for a year-long course in IEW writing. This course is best suited for students who are comfortable writing sentences, have legible handwriting, and can copy sentences off the board. Class is taught by an accredited IEW instructor. **The teacher is offering a discount if you have a child in one of the older, $150 classes. If you do, the cost of this class will be $30 instead of $50.
