Tidewater Writing Project engaged 21 students in grades 3 – 5 in a 10-day Project Based Functional Writing Camp during the summer of 2014.  Activities included projects to build a toy vehicle based on the book Galimoto, by Karen Williams, and produce a collaborative cookbook.  In addition, Tidewater TCs introduced students to STEM activities, internet research, daily read-alouds, author’s chair and yoga (!) during a camp designed to encourage reluctant writers.
