Adventures in Writing by Education.com

Title: Adventures in Writing: A workbook of imagination and writingAdventures in Writing

Author: Education.com

Publisher: Dover Publications

Rating: 4/5

This is a workbook for children aged 6 – 7 years old designed to provide a range of fun activities to promote children’s writing. There are activities to encourage the use of sentences which are correctly structured and punctuated, stimuli to encourage children to use their imagination including art based activities, story stimuli and a variety of worksheet activities to help children consolidate their learning of the skills taught. There are additional support materials available on the associated website, too.

This is a very useful resource book to help children succeed as writers. Teachers and parents of children in this age range should check it out to see if it is appropriate for their children. It could also be a useful source of ideas for teachers motivating their pupils. There are a few aspects that UK teachers would need to amend as the terminology used is American English based – for instance ‘full stops’ are referred to as ‘periods’ and the vocabulary used is also spelt in the American rather than UK format (e.g. color rather than colour). Having said that, it is still full of great ideas that could easily be adapted for use in the classroom wherever you are in the world.

Thanks to the authors, publisher and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book is available from a variety of sources including
