Category Description for Creative Writing Made Easy:

From the new millennium girls collection, this creative writing series gives girls an outline along with writing guidelines in an engaging format to create a book. Kids write in the books as they get lessons on writing a good plot with correct grammar. This would be a fun addition to a grammar or writing program that gives kids a chance to apply what they are learning. Introducing Isabel contains the writing components to develop characters, setting and plot, writing dialogue and brainstorming story ideas. The cover of Isabels Closet has the paper doll version of Isabel and the inside pages contain loads of outfits for her to wear. With this product, you can reenact the stories you've created about Isabel. There are several hair designs to color and cut out. Add a set of colored pencils with this book and your young ladies will be off to the races, or a party, or wherever your childs story takes Isabel!

In 2017, 3 books were added to the series to get your students excited to write. I found these to be more neutral than the girl-focused like the Isabel books. Ocean Adventures combines loads of fun science exploration with writing a good story. Over the 12 lessons, add your own interests and imagination to the question prompts that teach you how to develop characters and more. Your story is finished at this point, and now you get to write the final draft on the lined pages in the back that have cartoon sea life borders you can color. There is even a cover page for you and some resource pages with animal facts you can use to begin your research. Zany Zoo Adventures is similarly formatted. Loads of fun prompts lead you through the story writing process. Kids will choose an animal character and create an imaginative story. Spies of the Revolutionary War has 6 lessons walking you through the process of writing a historical fiction story: create a spy character, make a secret code, create a setting & plot, and write good dialogue. Visually appealing, this book will have you create a lapbook along with other crafty projects as well (101 pages). These are a very user-friendly way to teach some solid story writing principles. 85-90 pgs each, pb ~ Sara/Ruth

Is this book consumable, or could my two girls share it?
Michelle on Jul 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This is set up as a consumable, with questions to answer and in the brainstorming format that is provided. We have not used it yet, I bought it for the coming year. Because of this I am unsure if you would easily be able to use a notebook to answer the questions and work through the process. I hope that helps.
Is this too young for a 12 year old to supplement her language arts curriculum?
A shopper on Feb 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It might depend a bit on your 12 year old but I would say that is probably not be too young. I think I would have her look at the sample pages and get her opinion. In general, the writing instruction is pretty basic for the creative writing process and should be helpful for her. You would expect a more polished "work" from a 12 year old than from a 9 year old, however.
