The Arrow creates a love of reading and writing through literature!

Our year-long program is delivered in nine month-long lesson plans, released monthly.

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 the time-tested practices of 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 and effective grammar and punctuation activities that kids love

  • A simple, delightful writing exercise to apply lessons

  • 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 copywork and dictation practices, as well as a planning tool and a writing skills tracker to help you stay attuned to your child's progress.

Start any time. Enjoy the published Arrows in any order. You will receive all nine by April 2025.
