826LA

Type: Academic, Writing Classes

Description:

826LA provides students with tutoring that will improve their reading and writing skills. Because the tutoring services are free, participating students must meet certain requirements (that are online). Tutors are volunteers, and once homework is completed, volunteers turn their attention and focus to reading and writing. Students ultimately write and publish their own stories.

The Writing Club

Type: Creative Writing, Writing Classes

Description:

The Writing Club is a series of creative writing classes for 3rd-5th graders. Writers explore fiction and creative nonfiction via prose, poetry, stories, and letters. We will play word games, find inspiration in ten-minute bursts called “free writes” and work on longer narratives as well. We invite those who are excited about writing stories, as well as those who are timid and need a gentle nudge to put pen to paper. We will share, support and inspire one another. This class does not focus on grammar or essay construction, and there is no homework.
