"Valerie showed me how to dovetail writing lessons into the fun of storytelling. My students love creating their own paper-cutting stories and then writing them down. And I get my writing standards covered!" Susan P., Cassopolis, MI
"The tangrams were just what my students needed to get them thinking creatively about their writing." Bryan B,6th grade language arts teacher, Auburn, IN
"I appreciated the 'actual' activities used and will definitely use them again. In fact, many of my kids are going to extend Valerie's activities as part of our Writer's Workshop." Beth L, fifth grade teacher in Carmel.
"I would recommend this program because it encourages children to write, draw, and otherwise communicate their creativity . Storytelling and writing is something teachers can always find an hour to do." Dave W, fourth grade teacher in Indianapolis
