Many students come with a range of writing skills at the begining of the school year. Some basic skills they may have previously learned remain constant however some generalities that should be common knowledge often dissipate. It is difficult to build on skills if the foundation is missing or underprepared.
This book helps the student to maintain and recall skills as well as serves as a quick reference for basic skills that should already be attained and mastered by the end of 5th Grade.
There are short, to the point explanations, examples of how and when to use, as well as a Quick Write where the student practices what they have just learned.
Included is a strategy for recalling a writer's checklist in the form of a 10 digit number akin to a 'helpline'. Each digit represents a basic tool that the learner must be familiar with.
At the end of this book is the opportunity to revise the entire basic Writer's Checklist.
