My toddler wants to go to Mighty Writers every day!
My son loves this program so much. Every day, he asks to go to mighty writers (sometimes instead of daycare) and he tells me that he wants to play with Ms. Martha (his mighty toddlers teacher). Since starting the class, he started pointing out letters on signs, in books and even in tattoos! He engages in much more imaginative play than he did before and makes up spontaneous stories during play. He is so proud of himself and everything he is learning. This program is amazing and we are so glad we found out about it. It is our favorite part of the week and I tell everyone about it.
I am just so happy with the progress my son is making
"I am just so happy with the progress my son is making. I just wanted to share that with you and to say THANKS to you and the staff at Mighty Writers for all of your influence on my children and the children in the neighborhood. You are doing great things for the children of S. Philly."
Anything to get these kids to enjoy writing is great!
"From a mom’s point of view, anything to get these kids to enjoy writing is great! At their school, they only do writing to take the PSSA, which means it’s all passage analysis. Zero is devoted to creative writing. I wouldn’t be surprised if the kids are afraid to do it at this point."
His mentor asked insightful questions
His mentor provided encouraging feedback and thoughtful commentary on the new version of Liam's college essay. She listened carefully to Liam's ideas and helped him to convey them logically and clearly, weaving several of his main points into a coherent draft. Her insightful questions elicited unsuspected reflections that Liam has since incorporated into his revised version to produce a more introspective essay...Liam seems more thoughtful and confident already and we look forward to his progress in the future.
My 5th grader is reading on an 8th grade level thanks to MW
Indyla is now 5th grade and she has 8th grade reading level. It's Mighty Writers that helped her sharpen her skills in ELA. (English is not our first language 😊). Another idea for brainstorming; why doesn't Mighty Writers offer after school programs in school? It can be difficult for parents with young kids to get to your center, but we will keep coming!
My daughter forms her thoughts more clearly now
I found out about Mighty Writers while looking for something educational for my kids to do during the summer. Ms. Shanise really connects with the kids using things they can personally relate to. My child did not have the best relationship with writing and her grades suffered for it. I have seen improvement in the formulation of her thoughts, research, and transferring of ideas. Mighty Writers should expand to more areas of the city if possible so that kids from all over can experience.
He absolutely loves it!
"I just wanted to tell you that my son is attending Teen Lounge and Sports Writing now. He absolutely loves it! I'm so glad he's found somewhere he can be comfortable with kids his own age."
Mighty Writers is a gift.
"Mighty Writers is a gift. I was so worried for my child that he had lost his voice. And now I hear him say, 'I am a Mighty Writer.' You don't know what that means to me."
I am so happy with the methods that the Mighty Writers use
"I am a parent of two mighty writers. I am also a writing teacher for Philadelphia public schools. I am so happy with the methods that the Mighty Writers use. It has expanded their creativity and caused their intuitiveness for writing to grow. I am so proud if their writing and thank Mighty Writers tremendously!"
I’m grateful for your program
“She enjoys Mighty Writers so much. I have been meaning to bring in a sample of her writing from last year and compare it to her writing this year. She has made significant progress and enjoys writing much more than in the past. I’m grateful for your program.”
