Family Writing Workshop - 5 Family Spots Left - SIGN UP!

Family Writing Workshop – CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP

You are invited to sign up for a two-night Family Writing Workshop sponsored by the King School Improvement Team.

The first night will be January 31 from 6:30 - 7:30 and is for parents only (but childcare is available). The focus of this 90-minute workshop is for parents and caregivers who want to learn more about how to encourage their student writers in grades K – 12 at home. We’ll explore family activities that promote writing as well as effective ways to respond to children about their writing. The Parent Workshop highlights best practices in the teaching of writing as well as family writing activities.

The second night is February 2, from 6:30 - 8 and is for families. The focus of this 90-minute workshop is to bring family members together to experience the joy of sharing and writing stories about growing up. Children, young people, and their parents will learn ways to call up significant memories, methods for getting writing started, and easy and practical techniques for helping each other as writers. We’ll also discuss some ideas for sharing this writing and continuing family writing at home.

Some King families have attended these workshops in the past. It is the hope of the School Improvement Team that each family attends these workshops at least once during their time at King.

PLEASE NOTE: SPACE IS LIMITED to 25 families. Sign up early! If you aren't able to make it this time around, the workshops will be offered again in March. A separate sign up will be offered for that series at a later date
