This book has tons of great ways to improve writing.

- Alex Forehand, 4th grade, Lake Mary Elementary

 

This book helped me become a better writer! For example, when I got stuck with my writing, I would think about vivid words, transitions, and those awesome color words. I always try to stay away from tacky expressions...now that I know what they are.

- Francisco Magro, 4th grade, Alexander Elementary

 

At the beginning of my 4th grade year, I was writing 2’s, but because of Writing Superstars, I have pushed up to 4.5’s and 5.0’s. Since I am the “creativity skills queen” of my classroom, I know I can score a 6.0 on Florida Writes. Roll out the red carpet...here I come!

- Aleyna Villanueva, 4th grade, Grove Park Elementary

 

I don’t know how I would have accomplished all of the tips if my teacher hadn’t shared the books with the class. It has helped me grow from third grade to fourth grade! It’s truly superior.

- Kendall Jordan, 4th grade, S.S. Dixon Intermediate

 

Writing Superstars is an awesome way to learn very useful writing skills. I definitely think that Writing Superstars is a fantastic book that makes learning much more fun.

- Eliza Holtom, 4th grade, Canopy Oaks Elementary

 

I enjoyed using the Writing Superstars book because the Easy Way to Score helped me get my brain focused on the main idea of what I was writing about. It is one of the most fabulous books ever.

- Shereen Rad, 4th grade, Lake Mary Elementary

 

Writing Superstars has helped me become the 6.0 supersonic writer I am today. The remarkable puzzles, scintillating games, and exquisite samples are quintessential!

- Ryan Thomas, 4th grade, Dodgertown Elementary

 

Your Writing Superstars book saved my life. Before our class started reading Writing Superstars, I hated to write. After reading your book, my writing grades went from 2’s and 3’s to 4’s and 5’s!

- Ryan Bell, 4th grade, Sigsbee Elementary

 

This quintessential book has model examples of divine million dollar words, supreme examples of scored papers, and fantastic plays! This book has helped me improve my writing skills!

This book helped me so much. Now my dream is writing kids’ books! It’s all because of Writing Superstars!
