Creative Writing for Grades 3-4

Summer Language Arts

In this fun, energetic course designed for students entering grade 3 or 4, students build their reading and writing skills by studying the works of picture book masters. Each day in class, students will read and discuss a picture book addressing an advanced Language Arts topic. Then it’s time for them to try their hand at writing with a unique assignment based on the topic of the day. In the final days of the course, students will have the chance to apply what they’ve learned as they write and illustrate a picture book of their very own.

Some topics covered in this course include:

Each lesson includes a balance of lively discussion, independent writing time, and games to get the creative juices flowing!

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day. Summer 2020 courses will run online for all sessions.

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

Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes two weeks before the class start date to allow time for delivery of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.

"AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum, combined with outstanding teachers who have provided our son a fantastic foundation in mathematics. If only I could have experienced teaching like this when I was young, it would have changed my career choice. The academy is a perfect extension of school in that they challenge students to learn at a much deeper and rigorous level. They also stimulate their interest in mathematics by emphasizing analytical thought over rote memorization of formulas.

The academy truly lays a deep foundation in mathematical thinking for success in all areas involving STEM subjects. It is really exciting to be among teachers and children who love math!

The harder the problem - the more exciting it is to the students and teachers at AoPS Academy."
