Colours of Writing is a virtual summer camp from August 3rd – 28th 2020, giving children aged 8–11 an impacting learning experience in adding colour to their writing through enriching vocabulary & the appropriate use of writing conventions.
When we write, we write in sentences. Beginning with a capital letter, we wind our way over words and phrases until we’ve expressed a complete thought, and then we mark the endpoint with a period, question mark, or exclamation mark.
Readers read the same way: they follow the shape of each sentence from beginning to end, trying to understand the single complete thought the writer is expressing. For readers to do that, writing needs to flow smoothly from word to word, phrase to phrase, and sentence to sentence.
