THE WRITER'S BOX CURRICULUM


The prep work is done!

Give your children the writer's edge in your homeschool with flexible, themed creative writing units (we call them "boxes") that you print from home.

Designed by teachers to use with children ages 7 to 12.

Each printable Writer’s Box includes:


You've found the answer

As a homeschool parent, you know writing is important, but you also  know workbook drills and other tag-along writing prompts aren’t cutting it. Your kids should be more excited about writing than this, right? You’re not sure what the answer is . . . or even how to fit it into your day.


Welcome to the Writer’s Box. Yes, it works like a curriculum, but you’ll find it to be more like a writer’s playground that helps your children discover their own writing voice and interests. With the done-for-you prompts, project invitations, book lists, and lesson plans, you’ll discover how easy it is to teach writing in just a few minutes a day. 

 

Offering ten different writing themes, the Writer’s Box can be your anchor program all school year or serve as anticipated writing activities (some parents call them rewards!) during homeschool downtimes.

 

This is flexible and doable. Most homeschool families tell us the Writer’s Box is the missing link they’ve been searching for. 


We’re so happy you’re here with us. Choose a box and let’s get writing!

Ready to turn your child into a writer?

“My child is super creative – they just
can’t get their ideas down on paper.”

“I know writing is vital to his success, 
but his teacher barely focuses on it.”

“My daughter is always rushing her
writing.  How do I teach her to take
the time to edit?”

“I think my kids could be great at
writing, I just don’t know how to
encourage them.”

What parents are saying:

YOU MADE IT FUN

My kids were complaining that that writing was boring and they didn’t want to do it. When I saw these boxes, it was exactly the change we needed to make writing fun again! 

It works well for all six of my kids!

THEY ARE BECOMING WRITERS

From my work with college students, I know how vital writing is. It is so comforting to offer my children a chance to build their writing skills outside of the school setting. 

They are becoming writers.

MEREDITH M.

Highlight of her life

The Writer’s Box has been and will always be a highlight in Noelle’s life. She absolutely LOVES to write. It’s not as easy to find writing ‘lessons’ as it is for ballet or ice skating. This is just as important to her! I’m so happy we found you!

NATALIE T.

She now writes pages of stories

Before the Writer’s Box, writing was a struggle, but this experience has motivated my daugher to see she is a writer. She now writes pages of stories at a time. I’m thankful for the Writer’s Box for helping her discover the joy of writing!

SHEVONNE O.

This has given us weeks of material!

We absolutely love this! It’s been several weeks, and we are still finding ways to use the first pack! My kids have written several stories and are really enjoying themselves. Thank you again. I hope you continue to offer the PDF version. It is such a great idea!

Frequently Asked Questions

Each box download works for emerging as well as advanced writers. We have seen it work for children as young as six and as old as thirteen. There is lots of room for creativity and interpretation. 

The boxes come with flexible lesson plans to guide your homeschool rhythms, but you also want to let your children’s interest play a part in this writing journey. The Writer’s Guide included with each box is written to the young writer with that thought in mind. There is no “wrong way” to do a box. The goal is to help kids become driven, independent writers. If they are writing more than they were before, you are winning. Consistency will help you make more progress than anything else.
