Middle School Writers Bundle

Make a rule: Writing will not be tedious in our household!

Flip the script on writing—learn to transform the age-old writing formats into life-giving writing experiences.

In the Middle School Writer’s Bundle, we combine three interlocking programs for a year of essential language arts:

  1. An easy-to-use manual to help you teach your kids how to write.

  2. Monthly handbooks that pair with read aloud novels. Discover the "not boring" way to learn grammar, punctuation, and reading comprehension!

  3. A program of oral language activities and twelve writing assignments that are right for this age and stage.

Our bundles are made up of 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.

This is more than a curriculum, it is a paradigm shift. Reading these materials and letting them soak in has brought a lot of clarity to me about the process of teaching my kids to write... It is helping me to step back and see the big picture.
