In this e-book/downloadable product, you will find Donna Reish and Joshua Reish’s writing boxes for third through eighth grade students—based on the amazing story of Mowgli in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.*
From the student Overview Box at the beginning of the project:
“This week will you will be writing a report over given material. That is, you will not find your own material to write from, but you will use material provided for you in this weekly lesson and take an S-by-S (Sentence-by-Sentence) Outline over this passage.
Don’t worry! We will use Character Ink’s new Writing Boxes to learn how to write from a source. It will be fun—and you will be surprised how quickly you learn how to take notes and write.”
This amazing approach takes each sentence from a four paragraph story and breaks those down so that students determine the most important words of each sentence for note taking then write from their notes to come up with four pain-free, creative, fun paragraphs. Each sentence has its own page of writing boxes in which the student finds important words, outlines, writes the sentence, chooses describers and other strong words, embellishes the sentence, and then comes up with an outstanding final sentence.
The product contains over fifty pages of these writing boxes, including suggested answers in an easy-to-follow layout for teachers and parents. Students love our writing boxes—and they yield amazing results for writers of various levels!
