Each handbook is based on a novel and immerses your child in the world of:

  • stories
  • literary devices
  • grammar
  • punctuation
  • and book club parties

Find out why the Arrow has been the most popular writing program in Brave Writer history!

It's possible to learn grammar and literary devices naturally, in conversation, through playful activities. We show you how!

Our program uses copywork and dictation as the key tools to learn punctuation, spelling, and grammar naturally in context. We teach you four methods for applying those practices to literature and writing.

Each handbook contains:

  • Notes to go with a selected read aloud (book not provided)

  • Four passages taken from the novel for copywork and dictation, one per week

  • Easy-to-follow instructions to teach writing elements found in the passages

  • Playful grammar and punctuation activities that kids love

  • A simple, delightful writing exercise

  • Nine comprehension questions

  • Book club party ideas

  • Copywork passages on separate printable pages

  • Four-color design that looks gorgeous on tablets or printed at home

The Arrow program comes with guidelines to help you implement the practices of copywork and dictation, as well as a planning tool and a writing skills tracker to help you stay attuned to your child's progress.

The Arrow is delivered to your Brave Writer online account once per month on the 15th (starting in July). Each handbook is four-color, about 40-50 pages, is a non-consumable PDF, and can be used with multiple children (no need to purchase additional copies).
