Creative Writing for Grades 3-4

Summer Language Arts

In this fun, fast-paced course, students build their reading and writing skills by tackling creative writing projects spanning a wide range of genres. Each day in class, students examine a published piece of writing and study the craft behind it. Through close reading and discussion, they gain the academic and literary vocabulary they need to understand and discuss complex writing. Then, they apply what they have learned to write their own creative piece in the same genre as the piece they studied.

Over two weeks, students write multiple creative pieces in a variety of genres, including:

Students will have the opportunity to workshop and perform many of the pieces they write. Each day of class includes a balance of both creative independent work and lively discussion, performance, and read-aloud.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day, and is designed for students entering grades 3-4.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there is more than a week before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due one week before the course begins.

"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
