Learning Resources and Guides

Notes for Parents

All the resources in the Learn section are meant to be used by kids roughly between the ages of 5 and 13 – but some will require help with reading the instructions. You can also help young writers with scribing – writing or typing the words of the story as they dictate it to you. Download our Grown-Up’s Guide to learn more.

Notes for Educators

We’ve designed our programs and materials for students in Grades K-6. Younger writers may need a little extra help with both reading and writing. You can download the Educator’s Guide that provides lesson plans linked to the StorySheets to the British Columbia’s new curriculum.
