Membership Subscriptions Coming Soon!!

The Writing Academy Membership Subscription

Have you ever wished you had weekly support for teaching WRITING?

Imagine receiving a writing lesson, an editing/revision lesson, AND an

InterActivity every, single week!

Wish no more!  The Writing Academy Subscription is your answer!

 

Now imagine if all of this can be YOURS for only $9.99 a month!

 

Each subscription is grade level specific and accompanies each grade level

curriculum guide (daily lesson plans).  It is not necessary to have a

curriculum guide to have the subscription; however, the subscription does

follow the guide and is correlated to the ELAR TEKS.

With the vertically aligned subscription, you will receive: lessons, activities,

games, videos, PowerPoint shows, Conference Bundles, rubrics, station

games/activities, and even parent communication letters that are specific to

the grade level you teach!

Even better than all of that…….everything is in FULL COLOR!!!!  You have

the option of printing activities in color or in black and white.

 All of this is possible with the differentiated lessons contained within the

subscription!

Use the subscription goodies that you receive each week in all the following

ways: to challenge your GT students, reteach concepts with your strugglers,

have interactive activities for a Literacy Night at your school, engage students

in tutorials, create fun stations for concept emphasis, and teach whole group

lessons via PowerPoint.

Subscriptions begin June 21, 2017.  Each Wednesday, at the Mezzanine Level

($9.99), new information will be posted, and teachers will receive 3 items: 1

writing lesson, 1 editing/revision lesson, and 1 InterActivity (PowerPoint

shows, station games, parent letters, videos, rubrics, and graphic organizers). 

Be prepared to fill up a 4-inch binder by the end of the year!

Subscriptions renew monthly and will contain completely new

lessons/activities each school year.  Archived weeks may also be purchased if

you missed any at the time you subscribe.  Lessons will run all the way

through the summer!  Get ahead by starting in the summer!

 A typical 4th grade subscription at the Mezzanine Level ($9.99) contains all

of the following over the course of a year:

    46 writing lessons

    46 editing/revision lessons

    9 PowerPoint shows

    3 parent communication letters

    2 videos

    3 Rubrics/Status Reports

    9 Full-color Station Games

    6 Full-color Small Group Station Activities

    1 Student-Teacher Conference Bundle

    1 Progression Portfolio Bundle

    Members-Only Forums

You can even UPGRADE your subscription to include email support and

paper-grading services.

Club Level: $12.99 lets you enjoy all of the contents contained with the

Mezzanine level, plus email support and the opportunity to send in 6 papers

four times a year (September, October, November, and January) for

assessment.  You will receive a holistic score for each paper.  This will allow

for you to have a second set of eyes grading your students’ paper. This service

is available at all grade levels K-5.

Suite Level: $14.99 lets you enjoy all of the contents contained with the

Mezzanine level, plus email support and the opportunity to send in 12 papers

four times a year (September, October, November, and January) for

assessment.  You will receive an itemized holistic score with the attached

rubric for each paper.  You will also receive an overview analysis for the great

things your students are showing in their writing and an analysis for the areas

where they need improvement.  This will allow for you to have a second set of

eyes grading your students’ paper, as well as detailed feedback to share with

your students, horizontal and vertical teams, administration, and parents. 

This service is available at all grade levels K-5.

Site Licenses are available for all three of the Teacher Levels mentioned

above.  The more teachers who subscribe, the deeper the discounts!  Join with

your entire school to be vertically aligned in writing as you all receive NEW

information to talk about each week!

Parent Pack Subscription:  $4.99 per child grants access to that student

to have a weekly game/activity accessible to them.  The unique and beneficial

aspect of this angle of reaching the students is to elicit additional parental

involvement and to accomplish classroom goals by FRONTLOADING. 

Frontloading is the belief that parents who want to help their children get

ahead in the classroom will have access to a game or activity which addresses

a concept BEFORE it has been addressed in the classroom.  This enables

students to have prior knowledge when the teachers asks who knows

anything about………?  Although previous weeks’ activities can also serve as

review and reteaching tools, the main goal is to approach the home

connection a little differently.  Provide parents with the opportunity to

introduce ideas to their children first.  The concept of “help them get ahead,

before you have to help them catch up” is quite appealing to parents.  It takes

the stigma off the family that the only reason they have to do extra work at

home is because their child is struggling.  At this time, Parent Pack

Subscriptions are only available for Fourth Grade Students.  This

subscription runs September – May.

Site Licenses are available for the Parent Pack Subscriptions if your school

wants your entire Fourth Grade Student Body to have weekly access to

FRONTLOADED, writing games/activities which introduce new ideas.  Site

licenses for the Parent Pack are $2.99 per student/per month for nine (9)

months.

 More information will be coming soon!!
