Writing Adventures
Overview
With a different topic for each series of 7-8 lessons, Elephant Community Press’s teacher-writers will lead students through themed writing adventures that incorporate quality readings and creative activities to get their imaginations fired up and ready to write. Students are separated into two groups (ages 4-5 and 5-6), and we will introduce age-appropriate writing skills and text types as we share our passion for writing, and have fun!
