Just Write 1 - grade 2-3

In Book 1, students are first encouraged to “just write” without worrying about spelling and punctuation. Later chapters discuss capital letters, basic punctuation, spelling, indenting, and constructing paragraphs. Other chapters encourage the use of colorful descriptions, creative word choices, and comparisons. In the last chapter, students revise and edit their work in preparation for publishing a final draft. Tips for making stories into books are also provided. A wide variety of exercises and engaging illustrations keep students focused and interested.
