Creative Writing for Grades 3-4
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:
- sports fiction
- fractured fairy tale
- literary mash-up
- choose-your-own adventure
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.
