    When is this used? We haven't done this yet. I got an email from T4L and it's called 'writers corner'.
    THANKS

    Writer's Corner is for kindergarten students to practice "telling a story" by moving pictures around.

    Story Creator is introduced late in the first grade language arts program and is used throughout second grade. Third graders and higher use Odyssey Writer.

    Can you please explain the Odyssey Writer? Where and when does it come into play? We have just started in the 5th grade LA & Math.

    Odyssey Writer is a word processor that will automatically pop up when your student is given a writing assignment. In fifth grade, this occurs at intervals, once the student has reached the ILA (integrated language arts) lessons.

    Usually, it is the parent's responsibility to grade these lessons. Time4Learning is currently experimenting with grading student writing (in grades four and up, if submitted correctly), to determine feasibility and cost of providing grading on an ongoing basis.
