After school club starts Wed.  J decided he wants to give it a try.  It's only 30 minutes a week, so I am curious how it will be set up.

So Power of the Pen is a contest. The kids will be practicing every other week from now until Nov and then weekly until January when there first competition is held. At the competition the kids are given a topic and then they have 40 minutes to write about it. The paper will judged and the top winners will go on to the next competition. The final competition will be in May. Once your paper is passed over you are out of any future competitions. The guidelines for the additional competitions change.

I'm really hoping this club will help J learn to focus in his writing. He can churn out pages, but his writing is all over the place. He really goes off on topic :smileyhappy:

The math after school activity clubs have not announced a day yet. I'm crossing my fingers that the sponsor decides on a different day for the meetings.
