Sample File Introduction

For many children, writing is nothing but a chore, something that unfortunately must be done, like going to the dentist.

Just Write! encourages children to write just for the fun of it. We coax them to do this by presenting subjects that they already know something about. This familiarity of subject provides the "hook" that gets them to communicate their ideas.

We ask them about their thumbs (the "Hand Page"), or the biggest crowd they've ever been in (the "Crowded Page"), or the workings of a drawer (the "Furniture Page").

Each of the writing assignments also includes a teacher page with tips and suggested answers, as well as an extending activity that gives early finishers something to do.

As they put their thoughts down on paper, children will become more skillful writers, approaching writing with less dread, more enthusiasm and more confidence.
