Q: How do you use the notebook?
A: The notebook is designed to be self-directed by the child, and many of the pages can be completed in any order. In the Creative Writing #2 Notebook, the child will spend time creating and refining two full stories. The pages in those sections should be done in order and will walk the child through each step of the process. Either allow the child to use the notebook whenever desired, or set aside time each day, a few times a week, or once a week for working on the notebook. Some children may need prompting and help, while others may not. Some children may need some pushing (for example, “You must complete three pages a week, but you can choose whatever pages you would like”), while others may not.
Q: Will the notebook last a full school year?
A: It completely depends on how often and how fast the child works. Some pages can be completed quickly, while others will take much longer. To finish in one school year, it is suggested that the child completes an average of three pages a week.
