Designed as a curriculum supplement for grades 5 to 8, "Time To Write" by Robert Myers is comprised of forty-three standards-based lessons for developing children's creative writing skills. Those skill sets include the use of synonyms, alliterations, descriptions, paragraphs, making advertisements, letter to the editor, writing limericks, haikus, cinquain, research reports, non-fiction narratives, essays, anecdotes, character sketches, humorous speech, the short story, and crafting the dramatic incident. These 'kid friendly' exercises will help students ages 10 to 14 to become progressively more involved and expert with their writing efforts. Enhanced with Teacher Notes for each lesson and student warm-up activities, "Time To Write" is especially commended as a resource to help classroom teachers with their lesson plans. Also very highly recommended for elementary school and home schooling curriculum resources are two other outstanding titles from Good year Books: "Write Away!: 140 Writing Prompts For Grades 4-6" (1596470879, $19.95) and "Moe's Cafe: 48 Decidedly Different Creative Writing Prompts" for grades 6 to 12 (1596470887, $14.95).
