the joy of having your children develop good solid writing skills

If you want to inspire your child and
others to grow as a writer, then lighting a fire in their youth
to love the written word is a MUST! You simply can not sit back
and expect a child to love writing when all they are faced with
is boring composition work in Language Arts class or through 15
minute "sound bites" exercises that simply mark off time
and never give kids a chance to be immersed in a genre or writing
How many things do you learn in your
adult life with less than an hour and a handout sheet? We would
never expect anyone to learn say, auto repair or computer programming
in this manner, yet we so often throw away our children's precious
desire to learn by short changing them with "fluff" and
time wasting exercises that result in just a worksheet to be thrown
away when clean up time arrives.
As a lifelong writer, I know how to
create that spark in your child that will grow to a fire within,
loving the written word and the whole creative process within.
You must nurture and immerse the child
in good, redemptive learning and guide them to the joys of the creative
process. It doesn't take a Ph.D. to see that children love creative
learning processes, yet we tend to stifle them at a young age, forcing
them into the confines of "proper English rules" and learning
how to diagram sentences and exploring the subtle nuisances of the
Isn't it ironic that we usually don't
introduce them to "creative writing" until high school,
missing out on the wonderful years of fresh and vibrant creativity
that younger children possess!
With our e-course, Creative Writing
for Kids, we attempt to get the students into solid projects,
done over a 2 or 3 week time span where the child learns and explores
the whole unit theme and delights their sense of creativity in a
project that will be a family keepsake, no doubt!
We offer plenty of online resource
links, books, media sources and helper graphic sheets to get the
lessons taught. Your child will learn about journaling and playwriting,
poetry, scrapbooking, comic books, TV show scripts, fictional story
writing, biographies and memoirs and much more. Some of the projects
will integrate hands on projects in art and other media as well
as printed words.
My partner, Sherri, and I are both
writers since childhood and have continued this love through our
adult lives. Each of us brings to this course a desire to help you
teach the same enthusiasm to your children and nurture those fledgling
little writers within!
Don't worry if you're not a writer
after teaching our course, I'll
bet you will be!

I've seen this
work as Sherri and Dave have been working, testing and editing
this course and all I can say is
GET THE FIRST COPY!"
As a homeschooling parent of two children, I dread teaching
them anything with writing and the creative process. All the
workbooks and programs out there just make my older daughter
yawn with their tired old "Imagine you meet a space
alien and interview him" types of boring writing exercises
and my younger son just doesn't like to write yet.
However, when I began to tell them about the course and how
we'll be making a family newsletter and scripting a WHOLE newscast
from a silly town and videotaping it for the grandparents, they

Writing is the one thing that so many children adore about
writing, yet so often it is ignored as not quite worthy in
the traditional school setting. This is such a shame, since
it is when children are young that they at their most receptive
and LOVE to imagine and explore the printed word.
We all remember the drudgery of learning to write reports and
thank you letters to Grandma, or the boring rote memorization
of the articles of language.
By using Dr. Russell's program, you can see the delight on children's
faces when they realize that they are in control and the sky's
the limit to their creative and imaginative experiences in writing.
I am so
delighted to be a part of the team designing and implementing
this course. I know that if works well for homeschool families
as my own two daughters can't wait to proceed on the next project.
I guarantee, children will simply love to write after
Learning to write

desire to write
and create as an adult.
Help your child
to learn to LOVE the written word.
In this world of video games and DVD movies and the electronic media
spoon fed to our children,
don't you wish that they would find joy in something that isn't
electronic and mindless?
Do you long
to hear your children talk for hours about a fantastic story they
are creating without your constant
pushing to simply get one page done?
Children love creative writing, once they are exposed to it and
learn that it's not "schoolwork"
but rewarding and a delight to their childlike wonder and muse.
Don't let your
child's imagination be boxed in and told what to do with harsh canned
15 minute time wasting fluff worksheets.
When your kids master the art of writing, they will have endless possibilities in the future. For example, they can publish book or eBooks with great companies such as LuLu.com.
Let their creative
soul fly free
and you will
be rewarded with
delightful writing and imagination!

Dave and Sherri will be offering "Creative Writing for ADULTS!"
Author's Note: "Hmmm, great idea Donna, who
knows what we'll work on next! I'm sure our e-course would jump-start adults too!
If you don't want your children
to become totally excited little writers, who talk about these great
projects all the time, at the dinner table, in the car and try and
spend HOURS of extra time working on creating, then PLEASE don't
buy this e-course. You'd be better off with tried and true little
workbooks at the school supply store that require only a half an
hour of your time and will certainly kill off any enthusiasm about
language arts your little ones might harbor.
Seriously, we created
this course for our own children first,
and for our friend's dear children, too.
When we saw the sparks and excitement our work was generating,
we simply had to offer it to everyone.
We guarantee you will see results or your money back, no questions
We could easily charge much more for
this e-course, however, we won't. Many families are strapped for
cash and find that most educational materials can be a challenge
to buy! I could hardly believe the $250+ price tag for a popular
phonics program and even a decent math workbook these days is $15-$20!
When you combine multiple copies for several children in a family
or a classroom, the costs prevent good decent learning materials
to get to the children!
