Master the basics of writing a good paragraph!  Scout has returned with all new adventures in Alaska that will guide students through the basics of writing a good paragraph.  The creative writing is focused on constructing paragraphs of various types, from instructive to descriptive and more.  Along the way, Scout will help students move forward with their grammar studies to more difficult concepts such as direct and indirect objects, clauses, verb phrases and more while reviewing basic usage and mechanics.  Students will also continue practicing their cursive writing skills and vocabulary building.
