Adora reading up on history

At age seven, Adora could type 70 words a minute. Now twelve, she can exceed 100. Her stories and essays are creative, funny, and well-informed. In the last year alone she has written over 330,000 words. How is this possible? Although Adora obviously has immense natural talent, this talent has been fostered by encouragement, love, technology, and a series of exercises designed to encourage and inspire, while simultaneously guiding a child towards a better grasp of syntax, vocabulary, descriptive writing, and plot. Although Adora was initially only interested in historical fiction, once her passion for writing was ignited, her interests have broadened to include other genres of fiction, journalism, and academic writing.

An innovative mix of fiction and instruction, Flying Fingers gives parents and educators access to the strategies that have been so successful with Adora. Originally developed and tested in the Seeds of Learning Writing Workshop for Kids, this system has been extremely effective with kids who had neither initial interest in writing nor apparent aptitude.

Seeds of Learning uses fiction writing as a gateway to other types of writing. Initially allowing kids free reign in the creative arena awakens a love for the written word that eventually extends to more academic writing as well. Flying Fingers includes a compilation of Adora's stories followed by reader's guidelines with activities, tips from Adora, and teaching ideas from Adora's mother and tutor. In an innovative and fun twist on the standard how-to blueprint, Adora's stories allow kids to draw a direct correlation between assigned writing exercises and their results. Adora's enthusiasm is contagious. This user-friendly guide is the perfect tool for guiding a child towards a lifetime of satisfaction, validation, and creativity. more...
