The Writer’s Jungle Reviews

The Writer’s Jungle is much more than daily lesson plans or writing ideas. It takes you inside the writer’s world. The first nine chapters explain the necessary steps to brave writing, such as, how to read quality literature and discover the principles that make it work, what writer’s voice is and how to cultivate your child’s writing voice, freewriting and the power of unlocking a child’s mind life, your role in the revision and editing process, what to do about writer’s block (especially in resistant writers), how to keenly observe not only physical detail but ideas as well, and more.

It will help you become effective in determining how to use curricula you already own or help you become brave enough to create tailor-made writing projects for your children that go with your studies. Other chapters include how to identify dumb writing assignments and what to do about them, discerning the natural stages of growth in your young writer and creating writing projects suited to that stage of development, playing word games, sample yearly schedules for each stage of development and journal writing.

  1. The Writer’s Jungle Review by Jan Lance
    Pros: so much fun, step by step ideas
    Cons: not scripted

    Grades Used: K- 12

    This is a wonderful writing program! I got a lot of validation for what I had been teaching for years. Looking for my children’s writing voice, helping them have fun with words, giving them tools to express themselves. This program lays it out in an easy to understand format, with games to play, how to bite your tongue when necessary, and examples of free writing and polished writing and the steps in between. The author helps you recognize the steps in becoming a writer and how to encourage your student at each level from pre-writer to accomplished author. Also this will help you relax your writing quotas! Who says you have to finish a whole 5 paragraph essay every day?
