Does writing guidelines help to stimulate children's imaginations, or is there a danger that they will be entangled in a mandatory reaction? The four volumes in Belitha's'Adventures in Literacy' range are designed to help young authors in years 3 (7-8 years) and 4 (8-9 years) try out different ways of writing. Overall, I believe that writing is best integrated into children's activity in each part of the syllabus.
However, these are not boring at all: the large size is attractive and the kids will love the wonderfully funny pictures. If you are a teacher, there are specific instructions in the Teachers' Resource Book, which contains useful and straightforward references to the goals of the National Literacy Strategy. Start-writing about things I do gives good tips for writing posts, menues, lists, notes, statements and ads.
There are interesting samples - a giant menue and a magnificent wanted advertisement placard - and the writing assignments are presented in an interesting way. Start-writing about people and places will help kids to organize a point of position, give clear directions and create clear messages. I' ve got some reluctance to use a guide, even one as visual as Start Writing Adventure Stories and Start Writing Amazing Stories when kids are just starting to do it.
Adventure stories have six themes: The kids are assisted to think about the character, the set, the problem and the solution when they try a storyline under each name. But I' m not sure it's a good thing to tell kids to use sentences like "to my horror" and "suddenly there was a loud..." - kids themselves will think of fresh expressions.
Amazon Stories offers useful assistance in the re-telling of traditionally stories from all over the globe, for example the well-known Fabel. Elementary educators, and especially those in the UK who adhere to the UK literature policy on alphabetisation, will find a useful source in the textbooks, especially the non-fiction one.
