Knights and Castles Damsels and Dragons Writing Adventure is Here!
Finally, a Writing Series That Engages Boys!
If your students love How to Train your Dragon, they will love this writing curriculum! It’s filled with exciting medieval history and activities, all while learning to write. The student chooses a medieval character and writes a fictional story from that character’s point of view. Will your young writer become a knight or a dragon trainer? A princess or a royal baker? The student chooses, and then the fun and learning begin!
You will love the self-guided, easy step-by-step instructions! There are twelve bite-sized lessons, 45-60 minutes each, to be used once or twice a week. Students create characters, settings, and plots along with learning how to use literary tools like similes and onomatopoeia. The book is also filled with medieval fun like building a marshmallow catapult, baking a dragon cake, and learning the ancient game of knucklebones. Boys and girls alike will love it! It’s perfect for hooking the beginning student or nurturing the advanced writer. Lessons culminate with an illustrated story and a medieval fair. It’s easily adaptable for teaching multiple age levels together and great for incorporating history and art. This writing adventure is so much fun that even the most reluctant writer will dive into the writing pool!
