Regardless of whether you are a good writer yourself, teaching someone else how to write can be quite a challenge, especially if that someone else happens to be your child. Fortunately, WriteShop takes all the pain out of the process.
Recently, members of the Crew reviewed WriteShop. In today’s giveaway, one of you will have the opportunity to win this innovative curriculum written for your elementary students.

From Jenn’s RAQ
Each lesson is loosely scripted and thoroughly described within the Teacher’s Guide. I never found myself wondering if I was doing something right or if I was evaluating my daughter’s writing correctly. It is all laid out plainly and simply.
From Delivering Grace
I think that one of the chief benefits of WriteShop, particularly for my seven year old, was to encourage a culture of writing. The Writing Centre encouraged spontaneous writing and some of the projects particularly caught her imagination.
While, the student activities are fun, what I found amazing about the curriculum is the effort put into the Teacher’s Guide. The tips and instruction on these pages before the lessons even begin are really what forms the framework of the entire process. From there, each lesson is presented in such an easy-to-follow format.
From Every Bed of Roses
We are both enjoying the learning to write journey with WriteShop. I am enjoying having Nancy tutor me through the guide and Sir N is learning through delightful activities rather than mundane writing projects.
Yes, I do recommend WriteShop Primary, especially if your child is a reluctant writer. WriteShop likely requires much more preparation than the average writing program, I dare say. Yet, its creative and so incremental nature makes learning how to write such a pleasant and plausible endeavor.
I, too, really like WriteShop. Although there is a lot of preparation on the part of the teacher, that is a small and minor downside compared to the benefits I’m seeing with this program. I have enjoyed watching my son grow in his writing and, most of all, find joy in the process. I found that my involvement, the slow guided approach to writing, and all the fun creative activities really made this curriculum a success for us.
It has been easy for me to prepare for. The tips and helps in the Curriculum guide are just what I need to take me through each lesson. It is a thoughtful curriculum.
I liked how straighforward the instructions were for the activities, and the “Parents say…” parts gave us some great ideas and tips.
From KGB That’s Me
The program is so well thought-out. There’s so much variety in the assignments so kids are not easily bored with the same old thing, and the activities make it seem more like fun games than boring old steps in the writing process.
From Thrift Schooling
There are so many aspects to this program that have been very beneficial to my son. My son’s confidence in writing has certainly been strengthened thanks to WriteShop!
One winner will receive the choice of WriteShop Primary (Book A, Book B, or Book C) or WriteShop Junior (Book D or Book E). The winner will receive the Teacher’s Guide and related student materials (value $36-$107).
