“China Adventures! Revisited” is a teaching guide for parents and teachers who wish to instill in children the love of writing and reading. An illustrated story, included, created by second grade students is an example showing the writing level second grade students can attain. This guide introduces the art of creating a book with children. This was a joint teaching project between Marcy Wirth, Second Grade Teacher and Edna Siniff, Publisher and former teacher. Both worked within the required teaching guidelines of the school district.
Marcy worked with the whole class developing the skills needed to write. Plus all the other umpteen things a teacher does each day. Marcy found Journal writing very important in the process of learning to read and write. Each child used a yellow legal pad as their journal for their research.
Edna had 15 minutes, once a week, with each group of 4 to 5 students. This is where student ideas were discussed and expanded. Where individual creativity was encouraged and writing reviewed. Where items from indigenous people in other parts of the world were introduce. The concept was to create a story based on lands beyond the United States. Broaden their knowledge while discovering things that might peak their interest. The student’s research discoveries surprised everyone.
The 15 week guide, included, was used by the teacher and volunteer to stimulate creative writing in these students. This program may be used by homeschool families as well as classroom educators.
