Product Description:

Teaching writing can be very rewarding, even if frustrating at times. The key is to find a program that teaches the useful skills of writing in a way that children will open up to and enjoy. If we ask the question, "What do children love?", one answer will always be, "Games, without a doubt, games!" So, why not try and incorporate games into the writing process? Here is a book that resulted from that. The five parts of this book are: first, activities designed to ease kindergarten and 1st graders into writing; second, slightly silly and not very long writing activities (this way it is more something to enjoy than to think of as an assignment); third, nine playful ways to improving spelling and handwriting, and to increase understanding of English grammar; fourth, activities that help children work on more sophisticated stories; and last of all, activities that involve longer writing projects, some of which will require a half hour or so of time. As the teacher, you can select whichever activities and games you feel would be best for your children, made easier because each game is graded and placed into one of the five areas above. 52 games in all. ~ Zach

Finally, a writing solution that works
My son is in second grade, and has always hated writing and struggled with fine motor tasks. We've tried many solutions, and nothing helped him to enjoy writing. We recently got this book and tried a couple of games. It was on the third game we found a winner and it was SO much fun for him. Not only did he enjoy it during his homeschool time, he asked to play it at dinner. That has NEVER happened. The 4th game we tried was also fantastic, and his attitude about writing has shifted in just a short couple of weeks. He's actually excited to get his ideas and thoughts on paper, rather than focusing on the chore of producing tidy letters. It's absolutely a gift, and I can't thank the author enough.

I bought "Games for Writing" two years ago when I started to homeschool my second grader who was a very reluctant writer with some learning disabilities We had tried other methods but made little or no progress with getting her to write creatively The activities in this book worked for us because they didn't seem like writing practice She could pull it out flip through and choose a writing activity for the day No more grumbling no more tears and MUCH better writing It's really great fun Perfect for 2nd 3rd and 4th grade levels
