Just Write Book 2
Just Write Book 2, for 3rd graders, has a little different format. It begins with some basic sentence, paragraph, and word skills, then with actually composing a story. Chapter 1 concentrates on the sentence and sentence construction. It reviews the basics of capitalization and punctuation then continues into subjects and predicates, parts of speech (adjectives and adverbs), adding detail, and combining sentences. Chapter 2 studies paragraph construction - much like the first level, only in more depth. Chapter 3 is essentially a review of topics covered in Chapter 7 of Just Write Book 1. Story writing begins in Chapter 4 which covers the same topics as in Level 1 and introduces dialogue and point of view. The last chapter covers editing and publishing. Both levels include some resource pages (story maps, webs, etc) in a Resource Materials chapter at the end. Because all material is reviewed in level 2, it is not necessary to use Level 1 first.
