Teach Writing Without a Pencil

“Thanks to the games in this book our students are excited about expanding their writing abilities. The verb ball game was an exciting activity that allowed every student to participate and my students started thinking outside of the box to come up with the “best verb.”

It was also thrilling to watch the students I had last year, now in 3rd grade, as they jumped up and down with their idea of a “best verb.” Last year they showed little interest in expanding their writing ability. I am already seeing writing improve and they are actually excited about writing. ~Melanie Cooper, a Texas teacher.

Students of all ages love writing when they participate in Peggy’s workshops. Centered on games and fun activities, even writing becomes an enjoyable adventure.
