Creative Writing for Grades 3-4

Summer Language Arts

In this fun, energetic course designed for students entering grade 3 or 4, students build their reading and writing skills by studying the works of picture book masters. Each day in class, students will read and discuss a picture book addressing an advanced Language Arts topic. Then it’s time for them to try their hand at writing with a unique assignment based on the topic of the day. In the final days of the course, students will have the chance to apply what they’ve learned as they write and illustrate a picture book of their very own.

Some topics covered in this course include:

Each lesson includes a balance of lively discussion, independent writing time, and games to get the creative juices flowing!

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Summer Enrollment Deadlines: Summer Language Arts enrollment for each class closes one week before the class start date to allow time for pick up of course reading material. Summer Math enrollment for each class closes one day before the class starts.

"Our homeschooled son is extremely gifted in math and science.  He really feels at home at AoPS Academy.  Through coaching and personal attention at AoPS, he achieved a 5 in AP Calculus at 11 years old and a 4 in AP Statistics at 12.  He also achieved an 800 on SAT II math at 12 years old.  Our son feels very comfortable in the atmosphere of AoPS, where being gifted in math is not looked down on, but treated with respect.  He has truly found his peers at AoPS Academy. 

AoPS Academy allows my son to be himself, learn that there are other kids well advanced in math, and gives him the confidence to know that it is OK to be great in math, and that other people will respect and value his ability."
