Laura Ingalls Wilder is our writer role model whose words bring to life the pioneer times during which she grew up.
Children will learn about her encounters with neighboring Indians, her first experiences in school, the brutal winters which almost broke her family, and the joy Laura found in the simple things in life: "love and duty, work and rest, and living close to nature."
Additionally, children will see the development of a writer beginning with simple storytelling, to Laura creating pictures for her blind sister, Mary, to the development of her "Little House" books at the encouragement of her daughter, Rose.
Laura will also introduce simple writing terms and techniques which are grade-level appropriate and reinforce the way writing is taught in schools, leaving children with the challenge to write their own special stories.
