Dear Fellow Writing Teacher, Homeschool Mom or Parent,

Are you afraid to teach your elementary student how to write? Are you unsure how to make writing simple enough for them to be successful?

Look no further...
Fables, Myths & Fairy Tales is here to save the day!

It is full of heroes and princesses, knights and funny animals. These characters and stories have been in books for ages.

Why is that? They are still around because they help you to know about goodness, beauty and truth. Plus you get to laugh a lot.

Writing skills & techniques are made so simple even a 7 year old can understand how to create a well-written paragraph. When my 7 year old was learning how to write, I had to create my own writing lessons. I wish this was published 10 years ago so I could have used it...and saved myself hours of time & energy.

Let me tell you how this manual works...

Marie Gerber explains in simple terms how the teacher or parent can use this book to teach writing to young students. Keep your TWSS Syllabus handy and the 9 units from Teaching Writing: Structure & Style to make your child a terrific writer. Even 7, 8, 9 year olds can learn these structures and stylistic techniques. I know because I've taught those ages before...quite successfully.

Maria provides the source text from which your child will write, a list of "what to do" to teach that lesson, as well as charts, outlines & helps to make writing easier than you've ever seen.

This book will save you tons of time, get your own copy right here!

In the Fables, Myths & Fairy Tales (FMF) lessons, Unit VII looks a bit different than the "My Dog Model" found in the Teaching Writing Structure & Style...

Unit VII of Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales was structured with Andrew Pudewa's direct assistance and according to one of Dr. James B. Webster's lesser-known models in Unit VII of Blended Structure and Style in Composition (Institute for Excellence in Writing, 2008). In Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales pp. 103 and 118, the author attempted to concisely explain the 5-paragraph Expanded Story Sequence model for longer narrative stories, and three 5-paragraph fairy tales are presented for imitation: A Christmas Carol, "Little Red Hen," and "Rumpelstiltskin."

Because Andrew Pudewa specifically wanted the student to write his or her own fairy tale, Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales Unit VII had to be modified to a 5-paragraph expanded Unit III (with characters, setting, conflict, obstacles, climax & resolution) for several reasons. In order to successfully author a fairy tale-certainly an ambitious task for most anyone-Level A students need to imitate a fairy tale that has already been authored by a master. Secondly, a fairy tale doesn't necessarily "choose 3 themes" as does "My Dog." A fairy tale does not express the author's "best ... because" idea in the last paragraph, nor does a fairy tale exhibit the typical Unit VII introductory and concluding paragraphs. But a fairy tale is, without doubt, creative writing.

So, although Andrew anticipated that some families might have concerns about Unit VII as it is taught in Fables, Myths, and Fairy Tales, he bid the author to ask parents/teachers to resist being legalistic about it and just try it-for the sake of their children's successes in writing their own fairy tales. Another way to get around the hesitation would be ... to just imagine that it's called something other than "Unit VII." Have fun!

This book also includes many checklists, teacher's notes and examples.

Parts of the book are written for a student but we highly encourage the teacher to read over the lesson before them.

For students grade 3 - 5...

When you use IEW, you will spend time teaching your students HOW TO WRITE, instead of so much time worrying your kids with what to write about. 

SAVE TIME and SPEND MORE TIME with your FAMILY by using these writing lessons that work!

For Newbies & experienced teachers.

Anything Comparable?

There's nothing out there that's even comparable to this for teaching children to write. The bite-sized, well-sequenced units are just right for elementary children... It encourages creativity by giving them a form in which to express their ideas.
