    Writing Strands: Challenging Writing Projects for Homeschoolers, Level 3

    This group of assignments in the series called Writing Strands is designed to give homeschooled third level students a grounding in the very complicated process of giving others their thoughts in written form. This level is designed for students who, in public school, would be considered ready for third or even up to seventh grade. Of course, third and seventh grade students would write much differently, but that is not a problem. Both can experience learning the skills presented in this level. It has been designed to be widely applied, for there are many experiences here that most young writers should have. Scope & Sequence: Topics covered in this level are following directions (basic), sentence & paragraph control (basic), rewriting sentences (basic), description (people), description (people's thoughts), organization (activities), organization (objects), description (perspective), story creation (creative), description (organization), description (actions), narrative events (organization), creative (narrative).

In addition to providing students with structure and focus, they are a natural path to other classroom activities involving critical thinking and writing.

    Daily Warm-Ups are easy-to-use reproducibles - simply photocopy the day's activity and distribute it. Or make a transparency of the activity and project it on the board. You may want to use the activities as a take home assignment to jump start creative writing. Included in this front matter are suggestions for ways students might respond to the quotations. Or you may use your own writing prompts. These writing activities are a wonderful way to get students to explore their own ideas and articulate their thoughts. However you chose to use them, Daily Warm-Ups are a convenient and useful supplement to your regular lesson plans. Make every minute of your class time count!
