Creative Word Studios- Sparkling Bits of Writing -Book 1
Disclaimer: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew
It is a perfect addition for a morning warm up or writing supplement. My son is not a fan of writing, but enjoyed the variety of lessons the book provided. This kept the lessons from being quite as dull. He especially enjoyed writing outdoors while we did some of the assignments.
The three main types of writing lessons were:
Free Writing where the student gets to take a five minutes or so to think and organize their thoughts prior to writing on a topic. Mini-Writing are short lessons where the kids get presented with learning how to write an acrostic, poem, or other fun writing skill.
Pictured below is an example of the Reading Response assignments. Reading Response, is where students have to think about the writing of their authors and practice "reading in-between the lines". This particular section can be challenging but is a great activity to grow analytical reading skills.
We also noticed that there was a star at the top of some of the pages. This is because it is a "Gold Piece" assignment. Gold piece assignments are to be graded using this special rubric.
