I had the pleasure of introducing my daughter to Writing Wheels, by Maupin House. Teaching a child to write composition papers, biographies, reports, etc., can be a daunting task. Children often have trouble knowing where to begin and what steps to take. After using plenty of workbooks and other helps, I found that Writing Wheels were the most useful and easiest to keep on hand. They are colorful, visual and fun to use. It’s no wonder they won the Teacher’s Choice award in 2009.
I was given the opportunity to review the Writing Wheels 3-Pack. This retails for $12.00 and can be found here. This is a great deal for $12.00! The wheels are durable, which is great since they will get used over and over again.
Writing Wheel 3-Pack includes a wheel to help writing papers in these genres:
Three steps to writing are covered on each side of the wheel. The steps are marked in order for your child to easily turn from step 1 to step 2 and so on. The steps for each are:
- Prewrite: Develop Your Details
- Organize Your Paper
- Write the Body Paragraphs
- Begin and End Your Paper
- Revise for Clarity and Interest
- Edit Your Paper for Conventions
Each step also gives detailed instructions to guide your child through each step. The wheels also give writing tips and list frequently misspelled words.
The wheels are appropriate for 6th grade through high school. My daughter is in 6th grade and she used the wheels to develop a six page paper on Beowulf. It was never easier to get her to write! The wheels made the writing process flow with ease and less frustration from student and teacher.
