Creative Writing for Grades 3-4 - AoPS Academy Morrisville Campus

Creative Writing for Grades 3-4

Summer Language Arts

In this fun, fast-paced course, students build their reading and writing skills by tackling creative writing projects spanning a wide range of genres. Each day in class, students examine a published piece of writing and study the craft behind it. Through close reading and discussion, they gain the academic and literary vocabulary they need to understand and discuss complex writing. Then, they apply what they have learned to write their own creative piece in the same genre as the piece they studied.

Over two weeks, students write multiple creative pieces in a variety of genres, including:

Students will have the opportunity to workshop and perform many of the pieces they write. Each day of class includes a balance of both creative independent work and lively discussion, performance, and read-aloud.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day, and is designed for students entering grades 3-4.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there is more than a week before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due one week before the course begins.

"General coaching classes at many academic training centers stress repetition of the concept until a student grasps it thoroughly. At AoPS Academy, they go far beyond repetition. Their highly qualified instructors do a great job at teaching fundamental concepts to students at much greater depth, and challenge them to walk that extra mile by presenting them with more complex problems to solve. It provides a great learning experience in a friendly, fun, yet competitive and challenging environment. They provide their students with a combination of excellent instructional curriculum along with amazing online tools. AoPS Academy also encourages students to take part in various competitions. Overall they do an incredible job imparting a deep knowledge of both math and language arts to all of their students, and AoPS Academy sets them on a path towards their career goals. We are happy to be part of AoPS Academy family!"
