We must continue to lead and guide our children and be a source of stability and strength.
The Story Train began locally in 1995 as a story writing enrichment program for elementary school age students in grades K-6. It was created and designed by Sharen Robertson, a Harvard University graduate and certified Reading Specialist, to inspire and motivate students to WANT to write. The literacy program, which is proven to build basic literacy skills (including reading, writing, and comprehension), remains true to its simple, yet effective focus on the elements of story writing and the story writing process. What better way to motivate children than to offer to showcase them and their stories?! That's what The Story Train literacy program is all about and has been inspiring students since it's inception in 1995.
The program components include:
The four parts of story writing:
The five elements of the story writing process:
2) initial idea
3) rough draft
The program can be tailored to meet the specific needs and budgets of individual schools.
