Subject-verb agreement. Voice. Topic sentence. Transition. Blah, blah, blah. If this is your child’s reaction to learning proper writing skills, then you need to meet author Lee B. Woods and his cast of characters.
Finding King Onomatopoeia and Other Stories from Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) contains 31 teachable storytelling episodes, complete with exercises, that allow 5th through 8th grade students to have fun while learning about:
- Who needs writing
- Subject-verb agreement
- Finding your voice
Believing that learning can and should be fun, Woods created brother and sister lead characters along with a gang of fun situation characters, including a hip-hop robot, one dumb bank robber, and a Broadway play director. Ludwig von Mayonaze is the kookiest of them all.
Like a kindhearted Pied Piper, Woods chose storytelling as a way of inviting students down a path toward the art and craft of writing.
Good writing will be important when they enter the workplace, where they will have to write:
Students meet our adventurous duo, James and Jessica Davis, as they learn the key elements of planning.
Once students have a plan, they can start to write. Students will get plenty of practice creating examples and answers the way our lead characters do, learning from Dr. Sidney Slicer and the rest of the cast.
Teachers looking for new and creative ways to help students learn to write can use the universal techniques in this book–and have fun doing it!
Stories can be adapted to short plays or skits that students can act out in the living room or classroom.
