Creative Writing

2nd graders will explore the fundamentals of creative writing, enhancing their storytelling and expression skills:

Narrative Writing with Planning Skills: They will practice narrative writing, planning, composing, editing, and revising real events, emphasizing transition phrases for a smoother narrative.

Fiction Writing and Story Structure: Students will learn the 'story mountain' technique for brainstorming and structuring fictional stories. They will create stories with a clear beginning, development, and conclusion, expressing their creativity in short essays.

Essay Writing

In the essay writing subject, 2nd graders will focus on structured writing techniques to communicate ideas effectively:

Informational Writing: They'll learn to craft factual texts by understanding key elements like labels and ordered paragraphs and practicing with topics that require chronological organization.

Mastering How-Tos: Students will dive into explanatory writing, using graphic organizers to draft clear, step-by-step instructions for activities like baking cookies.

Developing Drafting Skills: Building on these foundations, students will focus on refining their drafting process, improving their ability to edit and revise their work for clarity and coherence.

Language Mechanics

In the Language Mechanics subject, 2nd graders will delve into the structural elements of the English language:

Exploring Parts of Speech: Students will learn about the various parts of speech, such as possessive nouns, reflexive pronouns, and irregular verbs.

Crafting Effective Sentences: Students will learn to identify and use subjects and predicates across different types of sentences, including declarative, imperative, exclamatory, and interrogative.

Mastering Punctuation: Students will learn to correctly use commas, apostrophes, and other punctuation marks, improving their writing clarity.

Understanding Points of View: Introducing points of view, students will explore how different perspectives can impact the tone and effectiveness of various essays, narratives, and stories.

Figurative Language

In the Figurative Language subject, 2nd graders will discover how to add depth and excitement to their writing:

Introduction to Figurative Language: Students will explore the concept of figurative language, designed to enrich meaning and entertain through the use of alliterations, similes, onomatopoeia, and hyperboles.

Engaging with Different Forms: Through different engaging activities, such as fill-in-the-blank exercises and sentence writing, students will practice and demonstrate their understanding of each figurative language form, enhancing their creative expression.

Writing Techniques

In the Writing Techniques subject, 2nd graders will refine their skills for crafting structured and thoughtful essays:

Mastering Paragraph Structure: Students will learn how to build an engaging paragraph by starting with an introductory sentence to present the topic, followed by supporting sentences, and concluding with a sentence that wraps up the ideas.

Utilizing Graphic Organizers: To ensure essays are coherent, students will be taught to use graphic organizers. This tool helps them outline their essays beforehand, encouraging pre-writing organization and facilitating revisions for improved writing.

Innovative Brainstorming Methods: Students will dive into brainstorming techniques. They'll practice listing ideas and creating story webs, laying a strong foundation for planning and executing their writing projects effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions

Classes run once a week and vary in length, depending on your child’s age. Toddler classes for children ages 3 ½ to 5 are for one hour. Junior and senior classes for students older than 5 are two hours. Class sizes are deliberately kept small so that teachers can give each child the maximum attention needed. No more than five children are in the toddler classes. No more than eight students are in the junior and senior classes.

Each child learns at a different speed. We encourage you to keep your child in the program for at least three months until they become proficient in visualization.

Genie Academy complements schoolwork because children develop a better understanding of math on the abacus than is possible with the traditional math curriculum in schools. Faced with stimulating challenges, children find that schoolwork becomes easier. Genie Academy also teaches how to solve word problems, which are traditionally the bane of every student’s existence.
