Waaaaay back before IEW created the Student Writing Intensives, a handful of instructors wrote up their lesson plans for others to use after watching the TWSS videos. Here are the lesson plans that I wrote for grades 3-6 and 7th grade plus. They can be used for individual families or for classroom situations.


5 Paragraph Burger with Ketchup


A basic essay is very much like a triple decker hamburger – just add ketchup!


Character Combos


Too many “he’s and she’s” in your story? Here’s a way to avoid repeating the same name or pronoun for your characters throughout your stories. The same principle works for terms in reports and essays, too!

Handwriting Pages
I used The Institute for Excellence in Writing Linguistic Development Through Poetry Memorization program to make handwriting practice pages for my daughter’s handwriting workbox this year. (Here’s a peek at the Brekke Bunch’s workboxes.) I am so excited to finally have handwriting content that will hold her interest and have purpose. She’s my “funny bunny” of the three and enjoys everything laced with humor. Thus, I used poems like “Ooey Gooey” and “Rebecca, Who Slammed Doors for Fun and Perished Miserably” by Hillaire Belloc. I also added “Be Glad Your Nose is On Your Face” by Jack Prelutsky to round out the 23 weeks of lessons. I printed 4 of each lesson, so she will practice the same poem for 4 days in a row, and we will practice them out loud along the way as well. I am so thrilled with these pages, I just had to share. We’re using Pre-Cursive slanted font at this time. You can download them for your own family use below.

Landforms Matching Cards
I made these for a geography unit for my daughters. Cut them apart and use them for lapbooks. Print them on card stock and use them for flashcards or playing cards. Play “Go Fish” or “4 of a Kind”. Have fun with them! 😉
