Grades 3-4, Fiction


Fearless Writing introduces and engages students in the fictional world of imaginary people and places.  Children easily slip into the made-up world of story with just a few lessons in writing skills for fiction.

Our introductory lessons invite students to write their own stories using details from the five senses (sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste).  Then students learn to pump up the power of their stories using the basic building blocks of prepositional phrases and strong action verbs. Next, your child will read examples of a fairy tale, a legend, and a fable, then write unique versions of his/her own.  Writing from other points of view will ignite your child’s imagination and increase the soft skills of empathy and communication. Learning the skills of characterization will round out your child’s confidence in writing fictional characters that are believable and fascinating.

Fearless Writers of Fiction will not forget that writing is fun!  Joy in the creative process will foster your child’s continued commitment to be a Fearless Writer.
