We believe that discovering a passion for writing is essential in any language. The interest shown by our supporters, show that they think so too.
We now want to reach a second goal of € 7500, which will allow us to adapt, translate and produce:

Our campaign is not over yet. It is on until the December 4th.
You can still support our campaign and choose to receive your boxes from this fun game.
If you choose this writing challenge game for yourself as a reward, you can choose the language you prefer, English, Spanish or French (type it in the private comment section when making your donation). Please be aware that the English, Spanish and French versions will only be ready in February 2021 and will only be produced if we manage to reach the goal of € 7500.

The Portuguese version will be ready at the end of the first half of December.
The game Challenge youself! Write in 77 words , based on the concept of “stories in 77 words” (77palavras.blogspot.pt) has been working on texts everywhere, since 2011. With the implementation of the Re-Word-It project in some schools, we realized the need of creating teaching materials that could be used in the classroom, in order to encourage writing and the ability to overcome the fear of failure. The number of participations in the challenges shared on the blog, as well as the growing demand for writing workshops for children during the last year, showed us that this need also extends to the families at home.
This game is a 60-card deck that proposes writing challenges based on letters, words, ideas, or mathematical concepts. The goal is to write a text with more than 77 words and then improve it, by cutting and editing.
Challenge yourself! Write in 77 words , is intended for children from 6 to 12 years old and for educators, teachers, parents, tutors and all of those who are involved in learning and education. It can be played individually or in a group, at home or at school.
The challenges are already created and the design is thought out. We now need your help to put this idea into practice and bring a seed to children that will make them grow not only in enthusiasm for writing and reading, but also in autonomy in creating and revising texts.
