I don’t have horses but had a blast guiding students to write on a horse farm two summers ago.  Horses.  Farm Animals.  Art.  Writing.  Writing Games.  Finishing a book.  It was a perfect combination for a summer camp.

Making writing fun and active inspires and strengthens young writers.   I hope so much you’ll find this website useful as you peruse and gather ideas to motivate your own writers and guide them to becoming comfortable and confident at writing.

A Little Bit About Me

My name is Angie Marino and I’ve been teaching language learners for 20+ years in very diverse settings.  For the past 6 years, I’ve been teaching year round writing camps and workshops for Grades K-5 all the while home-schooling my own 4 children.  Read my full teaching background here!

Most recently, I created this website to serve as a resource for parents and teachers.  My hope is to help you make writing fun for your children and students.
