Ways of Writing with Young Kids presents ideas and strategies for teaching children how to write creatively in fiction, nonfiction and poetry, conventionally using standard spelling, punctuation and sentence structures, and confidently as they learn the roles and rules of written language. Ways of Writing with Young Kids is uniquely organized in twenty-three ways of writing that expand beyond one particular area. Giving readers a new perspective, the authors adhere to a unique and easy-to-follow system-"The Five C's of Children's Writing" (Coaching, Creativity, Conventions, Choice and Confidence). Written in an easy-to-read format, the book explains writing ideas and strategies clearly and concisely in an open-ended, easy-to-do, and engaging style that offers readers lots of flexibility of how to use the activities with their children.
