Creative Writing for Grades 3-4

Summer Language Arts

In this fun, energetic course designed for students entering grade 3 or 4, students build their reading and writing skills by studying the works of picture book masters. Each day in class, students will read and discuss a picture book addressing an advanced Language Arts topic. Then it’s time for them to try their hand at writing with a unique assignment based on the topic of the day. In the final days of the course, students will have the chance to apply what they’ve learned as they write and illustrate a picture book of their very own.

Some topics covered in this course include:

Each lesson includes a balance of lively discussion, independent writing time, and games to get the creative juices flowing!

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes one week before the class start date to allow time for pick up of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.

"My children have been students of AoPS Academy for several years now. The staff is very good at identifying and encouraging high achieving students to attain their fullest potential. The instructors engage kids to solve tough math problems, and push them to think logically and come up with unique solutions, instead of following a memorized formula. I have witnessed many classes where students are given the opportunity to suggest multiple ways of approaching the same problem. This has really helped my children develop independent learning skills and a stronger foundation in mathematics. The staff truly care for each and every student’s growth. Every child gets an abundance of individual attention. Programs such as the math competition classes, MATHCOUNTS Trainer Contest, and Short Story Contest really challenge the kids to reach up to the next level. The language arts classes like Debate & Public Speaking and College Essay Writing provide a much higher quality of education for their students. Thank you so much for being such a valuable resource for my children. "
