I get it. Your inbox is crammed with tips and ideas for writing with your kids. Your Pinterest board too!

You’d like to get to those one day! And to make it “fun”!

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and guilty.

We’re here to help! This is the class where we implement our best activities for you!

(We’ll bring the enthusiasm too, so you can go and reheat your coffee for the hundredth time!)

Class Overview

Made With You in Mind

Write for Fun: Fly High offers a frolic through a slew of entertaining, active writing processes that get your children’s creative juices flowing!

While your kids are having a blast, you don’t have to feel like you aren’t doing enough! Along the way, they are getting no-pressure experimentation with different voices in writing and learning how to sift through information and share research! 

This class is perfect for 

  • Manageable workload, a little structure
  • Only 3-week commitment
  • Practice having gentle deadlines/structure
  • Friendly support from our writing coach! 

Why write “for fun”?

It’s time to dispel one of the greatest myths in education: that learning needs to feel bad to work. 

We don’t adhere to the old adage of “no pain, no gain.” 

You’d be surprised how much kids learn when they PLAY! 

Quality writing requires that loose, joyful element: 

  • Structure and play. 
  • Practice and experimentation.
  • Mechanics and expression.

In Write for Fun we balance writing practice with writing adventures that kids love. To help students discover the joy and power of their writing voices, the feedback from the instructor focuses on encouraging the content and impact on the reader rather than mechanical accuracy (spelling, punctuation, grammar). 

Week by Week

Week One

Students explore characters (real or fictional) and summarize their fascinating qualities. Writers finish the week with an imaginary interview with one of their favorites.

Week Two

It’s time to don the travel gear of choice as students research and plan a visit to a destination of interest. Writing choices this week have the goal of enticing others to visit, too.

Week Three

This week is all about inventions. Students will take a look around the house with a new eye to finding inventions that matter to them. Then they’ll turn their creative brains to make up and sell a brand-new invention.

Word on the Street

After this, I will probably approach writing in a different way, instead of moaning and groaning about having to do writing.

Angela, 12

This class made me realize that you can make writing fun and interesting if you find a topic you like.

Eli, 12

We will be looking at taking more classes - I appreciate the detailed feedback and positively stated comments. It helps reassure both me, as the parent, and my child that we are accomplishing our goals in our learning adventure.

I used to think writing was boring, but now I love it!
