When Will and I started Loony Literature we hoped to get children writing more. Since starting this website, I’ve wanted to offer courses that would help kids to be inspired to write and also to give them the confidence that is often lacking. I’ve gone through many ideas to make this happen and now, at last,with lots of help and support from Will, I’ve got the courses going.
The course is made up of videos for your child to watch and story mapping sheets for them or you to fill in. You can take as long as you like to do the course because it is divided up into small workable sections. You can stop and start to fit in with your individual child.
When your child has done their story, you can upload it for me and the rest of the class to enjoy. I will also give feedback. You can use the course more than once because there is a range of main character sheets and settings for your child to choose from. You can also print up a certificate to show that they have successfully completed their story.
You can do the course with your child even if they can only write their name. The reason for this is that, they can tell you their answers and you can fill in the sheets for them. When it comes to telling their story, there is a section that suggests ways that they can do this too.
If your child is a bit older and can write a bit then they will gain confidence in their story writing skills as the course offers step by step guidance on how to write a story. Often children can handwrite but don’t know how to get their ideas down – the course will help them to do that.
I have wanted to use my education, writing and teaching experience, ideas and techniques to help get kids writing in my own particular way and now I hope to finally pursue my dream.
