Beginning Writers Bundle

Kids grow naturally from fluent speakers to powerful writers when they have developmentally appropriate tools and an enthusiastic partner to guide and support them.

You're that partner; we've got the tools.

In the Beginning Writer’s Bundle, we combine three interlocking programs for a year of essential language arts and early mathematical concepts:

  1. An easy-to-use manual to help you teach your kids how to write.
  2. Monthly handbooks that pair with picture books to entice children to playfully engage with reading, writing, and math! See the Quill description box below for the themes covered in each list: Frog or Hedgehog.
  3. A program of monthly oral and writing projects that capitalize on your child's big vocabulary and your ability to jot it down.

Our bundles include year-long, non-consumable PDF products. We show you how to put them together for a rich writing life! These tools can be used for more than one child in your family at a time, particularly if close in age, and again with other children as they come of age. Read the feature descriptions below.
