Elementary Writing 1 – Letters, Words, and Sentences

This first writing course is a 6-week self-paced course for Christian homeschool parents to learn the basic skills of teaching writing. The course starts off with an introduction to the biblical foundations of writing where parents can learn and teach the principles that undergird the subject of writing. Letter formation, spelling words, and basic sentences will be studied in depth. Parents will also be equipped to set up routines that help children build mastery. You child can learn the disciplines of writing fluently and gain the confidence they need to write and communicate Gospel truth to their generation.

Q: FOR WHAT GRADES DOES THIS COURSE EQUIP ME?

A. This course is designed to give you all the tools you’ll need to teach writing for kindergarten to second grade.

.

Q: WHAT IS THE PACE OF THIS COURSE LIKE?

A. Depending on your child’s learning style and ability, I teach you how to pace and approach children in a way that honors them as individuals. The goal is to have students reach automaticity in writing letters, words, and sentences by the time they finish 2nd grade. If it takes them longer, then take as many years as you need. If it takes a shorter time, then you can graduate them from Elementary Writing 1 to Elementary Writing 2 whenever they’re ready.

Q: HOW DO I PREPARE FOR TEACHING MY CHILD?

A. To get through the course, watch the videos at your own pace to learn how to teach all the skills. However, you will need to have watched all the videos to determine how to pace your lessons for your child’s needs. Each lesson is short and designed to be implemented right away. There are handouts that you can use to help you teach every day. Learn the skill, teach the skill, help your child master the skill. That’s your job and I teach you how to do all that.
